March 30th, 2017 by 

From the rising towers and ivy covered walls of Fenwick Hall to the manicured hills and winding walkways surrounding St. Joseph’s Memorial Chapel, the College of the Holy Cross campus is breathtaking.

And we’re not the only ones who think so.

Recent articles by both Travel + Leisure and LendEDU.com ranked Holy Cross the most beautiful college in Massachusetts, beating out the iconic campuses of institutions including Harvard University, Boston College, and Smith College.

To celebrate these recent recognitions, here are 10 of our favorite photos of Holy Cross:

    Beautiful, as always! And arguably the most beautiful and most well groomed Campus in the USA! Just like I always remember it!

    Having carried my special memories of the College close to my heart since I entered HC back in 1953 brings joy to that heart & tears to these eyes when I witness these wonderful photographs and videos that you are able to present to us today.
    Semper Fidelis…
    Thank you…
