Unfortunately the term "cathedral" is misused or misunderstood so that the term "church" or "chapel" should be used in its place.  But the ranking is a listing of the 30 most beautiful "places of worship" attached to University campuses around the world.

I wouldn't necessarily be sending this out if Notre Dame's Basilica of the Sacred Heart weren't selected as Number 1 in the world, but here again ND is #1. 

Other University "churches" in the top 30 ranking include:

#19. St. Ignatius Church, University of San Francisco

#16. Madonna Della Strada, Loyola University, Chicago

#14. Immaculata Parish Church, University of San Diego

#8.  Great Saint Mary's Church, Cambridge, England

#6.  Toledo Cathedral, Royal University of Toledo, Spain

#5.  Chapelle de la Sorbonne, University of Paris

#4.  Batell Chapel, Yale University, New Haven, Conn.

#3.  Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela,

            University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain

#2. Church of Saint Yves at the Sapienza, University of Rome, Italy

#1. Basilica of the Sacred Heart, University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, Indiana
