It was an incredible basketball tournament this year and all of the excitement came to a head when UNC found themselves victorious over Gonzaga in Phoenix. There was just as much excitement in our battle for the Best College Landmark and you’ve decided who would be declared the winner!
The Bell Tower at NC State hit a stride early on by knocking out The Grove at Ole Miss and then the Rotunda at UVA. They saw a chance to take down local rival, Duke, by beating out the Duke Chapel before eliminating the University of Pittsburgh’s beloved Cathedral of Learning.
The Geisel Library at the University of California, San Diego has been determined to be victorious this year. In the first round they proved not everything is better in Texas by defeating Texas Tech’s Will Rogers Statue, then the Grady Gammage Memorial Auditorium at Arizona State. Showing no mercy, UCSD took down their sister school, UCLA and the Bruin Bear to advance to the final four where they prevented a Hail Mary by Notre Dame’s Touchdown Jesus to advance to the championship round.
THE WINNER IS…
Congratulations NC State! The Bell Tower is the GREATEST college landmark in America for 2017!!!
