What a beautiful university!! And the addition of Robert Indiana's LOVE certainly doesn't hurt! Feels a lot like walking the grounds of Brown in RI--austere, old, welcoming....you feel smarter just being there!

We took some time to explore this campus and found it quite ordinary. Although it has a very rich history it was not one of the more memorable campuses to visit.. We loved the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology!

We walked from our hotel out to the campus to see the historic buildings and statues. It did not disappoint. It also leads to a funky neighbourhood with bistros and pubs -- the campus book store is outstanding!
