Fall is one of the most beautiful times of year to visit or live on a college campus. The leaves change color, the air is crisp, and comfy sweaters come out of hiding. When you’re on one of the most scenic campuses in the fall, it feels like you’ve stepped out of your dorm room and into a scene from a movie or a page in a book. Here are a few of the top most scenic campuses in the US (spoiler alert: several are in New England and the Northeast, much to no surprise):
As you might imagine, the most popular college in America is a matter of opinion, but there are a few schools that consistently rank high in terms of popularity. These schools typically have strong academic reputations, selective admissions standards, and vibrant campus cultures.
When choosing a college, in addition to the academic offerings, one of the most important factors to consider is the campus setting.

Organizations like The Scientista Foundation are dedicated to such a cause.
We’re all stuck inside a bit more right now and looking for things to do to occupy our time. Art is a great outlet for so many and craft stores have been seeing items fly off their shelves, presumably by those of us looking for a relaxing pastime or something enriching to do with the kids in between virtual learning.

ODK is The National Leadership Honor Society.
