Two local colleges are among most beautiful in fall

Lehigh and Lafayette make national top 50 list

Bethlehem's Lehigh University and Easton's Lafayette College are ranked among the top 50 most beautiful U.S. colleges in autumn by the website bestcollegevalues.

Lehigh was ranked in seventh place and Lafayette came in at number 19 among the 50.

In first place is Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Other Pennsylvania colleges to make the list are Bucknell University in Lewisburg (ranked 22) and Swathmore College in Swathmore (ranked 31).

The website reports Lehigh is "completely filled with all the golden colors of fall" and that Lafayette "is the perfect place to get a taste of fall colors. "

Although Lehigh is on the side of South Mountain, the website states that it overlooks the mountain.

Of course, as mid-November approaches, fall colors already have peaked on both Lehigh Valley campuses.
