Simple but valid question: "so what really defines a school as liberal vs conservative?"
So your student begins the task of listing potential colleges for visits. They begin their due diligence by visiting websites, obtaining brochures, visiting with academic advisors and attending colleges visits on their HS campus. Then they ask, "so what really defines them as LAC vs Conservative and what are examples of colleges that define this - the different cultures on these campuses. I could be there for four years." A lifetime in a young adults eyes I suppose. Campus visits are hit and miss so dependent on the time of year, tour guide and yes, possibly the weather.
What are the top 25 universities that you would identify and why? Examples would be greatly appreciated.
