Looking for schools similar to UVM in culture or 'vibe'

I think UVM would be a great place for my daughter, but it’s a little further than we would both like (8 + hours from Maryland). Any suggestions for schools that are similar but closer? She is very liberal and doesn’t want to go south. Also, she’s a bit introverted so she’s not interested in a small school (too worried about the attention the students get in a small school)

Hope this is the right forum, and thanks for any responses!
