Once Again, The University of Dallas Gets Named One of America's Ugliest Campuses.

At this point, the University of Dallas just has to be used to earning poor rankings from college watchdog entities.

Last year, you may recall, the Princeton Review called out the 1956-established Catholic university in Irving for being among the nation's worst schools when it comes to library facilities (fifth worst in the country), race and class interactions (15th worst), LGBT friendliness (15th worst) and overall campus beauty (fifth worst).

No surprise, then, that the school also boasted the ninth most popular study-abroad program in that same rankings reveal. These students clearly have plenty of reasons to get the heck out of dodge.

Seems time heals no wounds, though: Travel + Leisure's recently released rankings of the least beautiful college campuses in the nation finds the University of Dallas' only getting worse in the superficiality department. Says Travel + Leisure en route to naming the school the fourth ugliest campus in America: “Perhaps they hope the students will use their imagination to see beyond the low-profile, boxy architecture that bears uncanny resemblance to a public car park.”

Yeesh.

The good news? A recent $12 million donation aimed at erecting a new business school home on the campus could help matters some in future years, maybe.

The bad news? The Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business won't be open until 2015, so there's not real hope for change coming in at least the next two years.
