Most Beautiful Christian College and University Campuses in the World
Rhodes College Memphis Tennessee
Rhodes College s 100 acre campus is not only handsome, but a notable landmark, too, as 13 of its beautiful stone Collegiate Gothic buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places. Several of the structures at Rhodes date back to 1925, including Palmer Hall, one of the first buildings to be constructed at the Memphis, Tennessee based institution. Palmer Hall was designed by U.S. architects Henry Hibbs and Charles Klauder and was supplemented by the 140 foot tall Halliburton Tower in 1962. Other subsequent architecture has also featured a similar look for example, the student dormitory, West Village, which was completed in 2012 and echoes its predecessors with its stone facade. The Presbyterian Church affiliated liberal arts school originated in 1848, although it didn t move to its current location until 1925. Today, it mostly caters to undergraduate students.
