The article states:

Lewis & Clark College in Portland has a campus that is designed to inspire students to get outdoors. The 130+ acres of the campus, which sit atop Portland’s Palatine Hill, are perfectly situated for stunning views of Mt. Hood. Attached to campus is the Tryon Creek State Natural Area, a nature reserve which has become the focal point of Lewis & Clark’s “green” efforts. The campus is full of unique architecture, some of which are modern, LEED-certified buildings, while others are original and historical. In fact, the campus has been called one of the prettiest in the country by design experts at Princeton Review.
