Fodor's Review

Founded in 1764, this Ivy League institution is the nation's seventh-oldest college and has more than 40 academic departments. On a stroll through the College Hill campus, you'll encounter Gothic and Beaux-Arts structures, as well as the imposing Prospect Street gates, which open twice a year—in fall to welcome the students and spring to bid them farewell. On the ground floor of Manning Hall, the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology exhibits artifacts from around the world. The David Winton Bell Gallery in the List Art Center hosts several major art exhibitions a year. The Humanity-Centered Robotics Initiative's Robot Block Party, held in April, celebrates robots and how they are being used to solve the world's problems.
