Of course, the best campus will always be where you will be happiest.

Lafayettes's campus blows... it's a random concoction of completely different buildings. Also, Trinity's campus sucks outside of the summit street end of campus. Bad ratings.

Always have to remember: a hippopotamus is beautiful to another hippopotamus.

Lafayette has the feel of a small town square, perched as it is on a hill overlooking the Delaware River; the randomness and distinction of the architecture adds to its appeal.

Also, Trinity is impressive as a campus; perhaps you were swayed by the surrounding neighborhood in Hartford.

What are your alternatives?

Trinity's campus is really nice; Summit Street just isn't in the best area of the city. If you drive out a bit you're kind of in a bad section, but the buildings themselves/area encompassed in the campus were impressive.

Wellesley, Yale and Princeton have the most beautiful college campuses in the country.

I also like Cornell's grandeur, but find the campus itself a little bit incoherent (and I've been there on at least 50 separate occasions and even lived there for short periods of time). Personally I think campuses should encourage interaction between students - they should be places where you can sit on a bench at three in the morning or three in the afternoon on any given day or night, and find fellow students who are just hanging out and talking. Cornell just doesn't really do that.
