“What a beautiful campus!” 

It is a widely shared sentiment when visitors and passersby first feast their eyes on the “Jewel of Gentilly.” The “gleaming White and spacious green” is also an immense source of pride for Dillard alumni. Now, the secret is out thanks to Cosmopolitan. The lifestyle and fashion magazine, whose website attracted more than 46 million visitors in June, ranked 50 of their “most beautiful college campuses.” One of two Louisiana campuses ranked, Dillard was ranked the top local campus. 

Cosmopolitan’s Laura Hanrahan wrote, “Dillard’s campus is quintessential college—gorgeous oak trees, sweeping grassy lawns, very walkable.”

Few are more pleased than President Walter Kimbrough. “It is always nice to be recognized, but of course I think we’re a top 10 campus. I’ll start my shadow campaign for next year soon,” he quipped.
