College's with a historical campus charm?

While touring colleges, I've found I really like gorgeous historic campuses and the small college charm. Any recs for colleges out there sitting pretty in history and offer that intimate academic setting?

Absolutely, there are several colleges that might tickle your fancy if you're enchanted by the combination of historical character and a small, intimate learning environment! Have a look at schools like St. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland, which is renowned for its distinctive Liberal Arts program and beautifully preserved colonial campus. Another hidden gem could be Sewanee: The University of the South in Tennessee, which is not only steeped in tradition but also offers a striking gothic architecture on a campus that's listed as a National Historic Landmark. Or, if you're willing to consider a slightly larger school with a historic vibe, College of William & Mary in Virginia could capture your heart—a blend of rich history and a broader range of academic options. All of these options highlight a strong sense of community and place a high value on student engagement, much like Flagler. Make sure to visit if you have the chance; sometimes the vibe of the campus is what seals the deal!
