Most Beautiful Christian College and University Campuses in the World
Point Loma Nazarene University San Diego California
Point Loma Nazarene University moved to its stunning oceanfront San Diego campus in 1973. What s more, the Christian liberal arts school s setting is not only visually appealing, but also holds an intriguing past. From the turn of the 20th century to 1942, the grounds hosted Lomaland, a community dedicated to the practice of Theosophy established by Theosophical Society head Katherine Tingley. Certain of Lomaland s structures notably an outdoor Greek styled theater that was the first of its kind in North America remain features of the site today. More modern constructions at the location include the School of Theology and Christian Ministry, which wows through an impressive 400 square foot stained glass window at its entrance. This building was designed by local firm Architects Mosher Drew and was completed in 2009. As for the university itself, its roots lie in a Bible college set up in 1902 by members of the Church of the Nazarene.
