An on-line Christian publication says that the Canadian Mennonite University is the eighth most beautiful Christian college and university campus in the world.
Christian Universities On-Line picked only one other Canadian school, Toronto’s Tyndale University College at #4. First was Covenant College atop Lookout Mountain in Georgia.
Here’s what it said about CMU:
"Canadian Mennonite University’s beautiful 44-acre campus in southwest Winnipeg lies close by the edge of the Assiniboine Forest, the wilderness within a city. Founder’s Hall, the original campus building, was designed by American architect John D. Atchinson in the English Collegiate style for the 1922 opening of the Manitoba School for the Deaf. The "Grand Lady of Shaftesbury" features limestone walls, cove ceilings, Tudor arches, spires, gargoyles, and a four-story tower at the main entrance. During WWII, the students were moved to Saskatoon or Montreal and the Royal Canadian Air Force moved their radio communications school into the campus. After the war, the campus was utilized as the Manitoba Provincial Normal School, later Manitoba Teachers’ College. The barracks at No. 3 Wireless were converted into emergency homes for low-income Winnipeg citizens after the war. The four dozen families had the advantage of education for their children provided by the students in the Teacher College in a "model" school. The school’s campus served as the administrative centre for the 1999 Pan American Games. In 2000, the campus was purchased by Canadian Mennonite University. The campus was renovated extensively to house this new, modern university."
