Nicest Usports school campuses

I've toured a few Usport school campuses but I'm curious to know what Usports school campus is the most beautiful? Buildings, greenery, parking lots (or lack thereof).

    UBC probably has the mos beautiful surroundings and the campus itself is fairly nice too. You have a view of the mountains and the ocean from lots of places on campus plus and there are some sweet castle looking buildings too. There's very little in the way of parking/driving on campus which is great if you're not driving but awful if you are. So overall I'd say one of the most beautiful.

    If you're looking for greenery, trails, and nice buildings, Trent University (Peterborough, Ontario) checks off everything

    Maybe not the the most beautiful campus, but def the world's most beautiful [perpetual] construction site.

    UVic is beautiful. Campus has a lot of greenery and is pretty small. Lots of great running trials near the campus as well

    Agree re campus part, but trails nearby? Lemoine pt and Cataraquai are a stretch to call nearby unless you live close to them and campus is a good haul from both.

    McMaster has a pretty nice campus with great running trails on campus. If you want year round beauty and great running trails, you can’t beat UBC, and UVic.

    Cataraqui Park (not the conservation area) and the Fort Henry trails are not as far. Plus the Rideau trail out by St Lawrence College.

    As a Queen's alumni, living next to Mcmaster, with a daughter running at StFX, I would say the nicest campus is Antigonish or Kingston, but the best trail system close to campus has to be in Hamilton.
    Right down to the waterfront from trails behind the track, or multiple trails in the Dundas Valley a jog away. The options are endless.

    UBC and UVIC are not Usports schools they compete in NAIA. SFU is another Canadian school competing in the states (NCAA DII)

    No, UVIC has competed in USPORTS/CIS/CIAU in cross country and track since forever and as of last year UBC competes in USPORTS during the cross country season.

    wow - disagree. Have you ever been anywhere else? UBC has a beach; U of S is similar style to StFx and stunning; U of T's inner campus is beautiful and full or classic architecture, Western won a Communities in Bloom award for beauty; Bishops is amazing ... etc, etc, etc.

    Wrong. UBC and UVIC both compete Usports track; UVIC competes Usports xc.
