Washington University is the largest educational establishment in the northwest of the USA. Over 40 thousand students are trained there simultaneously.
All university buildings are constructed around Red Square. The libraries, made in neo-gothic style, as well as Kane and Gerberding Hall with classic towers and spires, have the most interesting image. On the campus, in addition to students, you can meet tourists that are interested foremost in the architecture of buildings.
The University is famous for its graduates, eight of whom were awarded the Nobel Prize in various fields of science. An experimental nuclear reactor has been operating on the campus for more than 50 years.
