I've asked a similar question before, but I've narrowed down the location to avoid getting colleges located in places that are too warm.
So what I'm looking for are colleges in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware, DC, or even Virginia that are near (or on!) the ocean. Preferred size would be 5000-12000, although that is somewhat flexible.
