Among The Most Beautiful Campuses In America

"Gonzaga" carved into stone on the front of College Hall

August 11, 2020

Anyone who has enjoyed the Gonzaga University campus knows how gorgeous it is in all seasons: Winter with ice on Lake Arthur, summer’s green fields and many gardens, spring blossoms hanging over the shoulder of Bing Crosby, and fall’s many vibrant colors surrounding College Hall. It’s hard to pick a favorite.  

We’re biased, we know.

But others are taking note, including the editors at Conde Nast Traveler, who released a list of 50 Most Beautiful College Campuses in the U.S. Among the beachside campuses of our coastlines and the centuries-old grandeur of the Ivy Leagues, there is Gonzaga University. 

Take a look at the list and see for yourself.

And if that doesn’t whet your appetite for Spokane and the Gonzaga campus, our university photography collection here surely will. You can purchase photos for download and printing at
