Most Beautiful Christian College and University Campuses in the World
Wayland Baptist University Plainview Texas
Wayland Baptist University has 14 U.S. campuses in all, but perhaps the prettiest is its main Plainview, Texas location. This campus plays host to lush lawns and foliage but it s green in another way, too. For one, from 2009 to 2010 it received a complete lighting overhaul set to save a significant amount of energy. Recycling has been made a priority as well, and a community garden is even being considered for the 80 acre site. Architectural highlights of the Southern Baptist Convention affiliated school include the elegant Gates Hall, which was built in 1910, two years after the university was founded. Inside, this facility houses an auditorium, classrooms, faculty offices and meeting spaces. And with its Greek Revival style columns and facade of red brick, the building s exterior presents a handsome sight for Wayland s student body.
