The bobcats like to claim that their beautiful, rolling green landscape is a treasure that only their fellow neighbor can call home. The value placed in observing their beautiful environment is something that students and faculty try to keep in mind when walking their daily routes. However, their honor and prestige teeters a bit when they catch the attention of a photo and claim “Hey! That’s totally my school!” when, in actuality, its another brick campus with a lot of green. Here are 5 college campuses that share this strange power.
- Green Mountain College
This one literally has green in the name of the college. That’s something that Ohio University can’t even do. Nestled in the southern reaches of a distant land called Vermont, Green Mountain College is a small, private establishment that attempts to convince its patrons that the appearance of older looking brick buildings surrounded by a lot of green grass is something unique to their experience.
2. Morehouse College
Morehouse College is a private. all-male, liberal arts, historically black college located in Atlanta, Georgia. This place is actually pretty cool, especially when you factor in that it is one of the very few men’s liberal arts colleges left in the United States, and also that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called this place his alma mater. Regardless of all these things, the place still definitely kinda looks like Ohio University.
3. Gnanatheeppam Community College
I promise I didn’t just take a picture of Ohio University’s campus and just make up a name like Gnanatheeppam to make all of this fit. Believe it or not, this is a picture of a community college all the way in Marthandam, India. That’s right, a college doesn’t even have to be in America to look a lot like Ohio University. Gnanatheeppam is one of the most populated community colleges within India, and it is very well respected throughout many of the country’s massive industrial success bubbles.
4. University of Maryland
This college carries the reputation of being one of the most successful public research colleges across the nation. Not only that, but they are also noted for having acquired success through their athletic department, as they are often identified for being a member of the Big Ten Conference. This place isn’t even really that far from Ohio University, i mean, they are sort of on the same coast. Clearly there is something about the east coast that produces brick houses with white detailing and tons of green grass.
5. Vanderbilt University
Those who have witnessed Vanderbilt University with their own eyes often claim that it is like “stepping into the 1700s”, a feeling that is apparently pretty common across all of these campuses. Much like Ohio University, Vanderbilt is an exceedingly historic campus, having been established in 1873. The fact that neither this place nor Ohio University has changed its looks over about 200 years makes you wonder if those responsible for decorating these places are trying to be historic, or just lazy. Either way, they kinda look the same.
