ABSTRACT
The article discusses the attributes and sense of a community in university campuses in the U.S. The author points out that planners and designers seek to foster a high level of interaction and a strong sense of place which are present in university campuses attributed to uniformity of tastes, customs, speech and even mode of thoughts. Unlike other communities, universities give each person and each student the chance to deviate from conventional measures of success and remake themselves socially and professionally. University campuses boast of a condition of collegiality which serves as a basis of the special sense of community.
