Discus: College Search and Selection: September 2003 Archive: What are some strongly political colleges?

As in, what are some colleges that are being liberal and involved in liberal causes; some that are conservative and known for having students that are conservative; and some more moderate ones?

I'm just starting too look at different colleges, and was wondering what the mind-sets were that pervaded major institutions.

And Carolyn lists again!

That covers most of them, it seems, but special emphasis should be given to Oberlin and Macalester (particularly for liberals), UC-Berkeley, and Swarthmore. Bryn Mawr would be a possiblity, but unfortunately not one for you :)
Guilford College (NC) is also quite actively liberal, from what I understand. I could contact some people I know there and ask if you're more interested in them...
