America's Ugliest College Campuses

America's Ugliest College Campuses: SUNY Purchase

Carolyn Kavich

SUNY Purchase, NY

A shortage of windows gives SUNY Purchase a rather ominous vibe more appropriate for New York’s Sing Sing Prison. When the campus was constructed in 1967, Modernism was at its zenith and such an expressive school of uninterrupted expanses of dark brick was a sight to behold. Still, the blank canvas of SUNY Purchase conceals a vibrant campus life. One student commenting on Unigo.com declares “a huge two-day music festival, Zombie Prom, and Pancake Madness! pajama party” as highlights.
