Whitehead Building at Brooklyn College
Brooklyn College has what some people consider a pretty campus. I tend to think that those people are only comparing BC's campus to NYU or something, because if you stack it up against, like, Princeton or Wesleyan or, I don't know, Claremont-McKenna, you won't really think Brooklyn College's campus is all that beautiful. Which, who cares, right? Sometimes it's the humble things that you grow most attached to, and so while the library at Brooklyn College is certainly nice enough, and the ivy-covered Boylan building has its charms, our favorite BC building is Whitehead. First of all, the name. The name is great. Going to class in a building named after a minor, pus-filled skin eruption is better than it sounds. But also, as you can see in the photo above, the lettering in the word Whitehead is irregular, with the second "h" being much smaller than the rest of the letters. This weird anomaly makes us love Whitehead even more. We hope they never change that "h."
