  1. It is eften statit that Stanford haes the lairgest contiguous campus in the warld (or the Unitit States)[10][11] but that depends on definitions. Berry College wi ower 26,000 acres (40.6 sq mi; 105.2 km2), Paul Smith's College wi 14,200 acres (22.2 sq mi; 57.5 km2), an the Unitit States Air Force Academy wi 18,500 acres (7,500 ha) are lairger but are nae uisually clessifee'd as varsities. Duke Varsity at 8,610 acres (13.5 sq mi; 34.8 km2) daes hae mair laund, but it isna contiguous. Houever the University of the South haes ower 13,000 acres (20.3 sq mi; 52.6 km2).
