Most Beautiful Christian College and University Campuses in the World
Abilene Christian University Abilene Texas
Abilene Christian University s campus doesn t just dazzle during the day; it also does so at night. This is thanks to its iconic 150 foot tall Tower of Light, which when darkness arrives glows a vivid white not to mention purple, the school s other color, on special occasions. Next to the tower on the 250 acre university grounds is the beautiful stained glass edifice of the Chapel on the Hill, which features a total of 280 hues in its west and east facing windows. Elsewhere, original schoolhouse the Zona Luce Building marks a more traditional and arguably elegant presence on campus. The Churches of Christ affiliated school dates back to 1906, when it was set up as Childers Classical Institute. It relocated to its current site in Abilene, Texas in 1929 and later switched its name to Abilene Christian University in 1976. Both undergraduates and graduates make up the university s some 4,460 strong student body.
