Vassar College: The Campus Guide distinguishes the landmark buildings that reflect developing expressions of change in women’s education, home to a National Historic Landmark and National Historic Places. Founded in 1861 as a premier women’s college, Vassar emphasized the shared ambitions of knowledge through education and diversity through research and understanding. It is home to one of the largest undergraduate library collections in the United States. This Campus Guide is a beautiful and engaging portrait of Vassar’s 1,000-acre campus in Poughkeepsie, New York, with its diverse collection of historic buildings from the traditional Collegiate Gothic to the sleek and ascetic International style by such prominent architects as Eero Saarinen, Marcel Breuer, and Cesar Pelli.
