There’s a saying that if you visit a campus in the fall, you’re sure to “fall for it.” While that may be true, the chance that you might sell your soul to a school too early shouldn’t keep you from visiting college campuses. In fact, the fall semester is the best time to visit, whether you’re a junior or senior in high school. Get in the mood for fall and the college search by visiting one of Fastweb’s top ten fall college campuses this month.

2. Sewanee: The University of the South—Sewanee, Tennessee
Located on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, Sewanee: The University of the South is highly acclaimed as one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. There are roughly 1,500 students that comprise the student body from 41 states and 21 different countries. Founded in 1857, the actual construction of the university was delayed because of the Civil War. However, the university opened its doors in 1868 and since then, has developed a Gothic architectural landscape reminiscent of Oxford and Cambridge that rivals that natural surroundings. Students at Sewanee are able to take advantage of running, horseback riding, mountain biking, and hiking in the 20-mile trail that perimeters the school.
