Yeah, if you compare it to UC Berkeley - but it was lively enough when I visited.

I can speak for Brown and Williams, Kimfuge.
All three campuses are pretty lively, with a significant number of students moving around at most times.
Brown is a different type of campus. It has a "city" feel, not really a downtown feel, but more of a contained environment with larger buildings. It has some very nice quads and greens. Buildings aren't that amazing in general, but a few in particular are truly impressive. No mountains though.
Williams is much like Amherst in terms of the setting (mountains in the backyard), has more diverse architecture (as compared to the red brick New England town look of Amherst). Personally, I liked the Williams campus itself better than I liked Amherst's. I chose Amherst for other reasons. And the campus is still gorgeous.
Amherst has a sort of unity to its style, and manages to capture a lot of the rustic beauty of Williams while still being very close to civilization. YOu can literally walk to one end and see the town of Amherst, then walk to the other and see a mountainous panorama. I just thought it was the best of both worlds.
Hope this helps

I didn't like Amherst's campus that much. Although the landscape and town are beautiful, the architecture is boring and the campus feels cramped. However, this could be due to the fact that I visited during the late winter (no snow and no leaves).

the campus is amazing. not cramped at all. absolutely huge campus for the number of students, even not considering small enrollment. (998 acres, literally) whereas other campuses such as brown is 154 acres and harvard is 380. architecture is gorgeous (georgian), although i suppose that is an opinion thing. hehe

Dartmouth is probably prettier.
|By Virginia12345 (Virginia12345) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 03:37 am: Edit|
Dartmouth's buildings are probably more varied. But I must disagree with prettiness. As I stood in the center of the main quad at Amherst during the open house session, I knew that I could sit there for hours admiring the backdrop of the berkshires. It was so beautiful. It is a moderately small campus, and with the size of the student body, it feels very spacious. I remember Dartmouth to be very nice as well.
