In celebration of College Day in Colorado, WORTHGROUP is highlighting some famous architecture from colleges around the country and throughout history!
Did you know more than one university claims to be the first university in the United States? Harvard was founded in 1637 , but College of William and Mary is the first college to become a university. There is also University of Pennsylavania, which -while it does not claim to be America's first college - it does claim to be the first university in America.
Regardless of who holds the title for first college or university, all three higher educational institutions share more than the possible title for first university; all have historical and ornate architecture.
Locally, Colorado universities and colleges have some stunning architecture as well. The University of Denver - founded in 1864 (before Colorado was even a state!) - is the oldest university in Denver, and that is clear by the beautiful buildings and architecture seen throughout campus.
In Fort Collins, CSU has some historical buildings with equally historic stories.
Just down the road, at CU Boulder some buildings have quirky features to better service the CU students.
On this College Friday, WORTHGROUP would like to recognize our partner at the University of Nevada Reno for giving us the opportunity to work on redesigning the E.L. Wiegand Fitness Center and Mackey Stadium. We can't wait for these buildings to be just as famous at the aforementioned ones!
