What are some colleges that are know for being very liberal?

<p>I'm looking for very liberal colleges, similar to berkeley.</p>

<p>Let</a> me google that for you</p>

<p>smdporfavor, I love that little Google thing! So funny.</p>

<p>If you are looking for a university, then I'd say Brown.
Many LACs seem liberal such as Wesleyan, Oberlin, Reed, Bard to name just a few but I'm not sure you want that small of a school.</p>

<p>Reed, Wesleyan and Barnard ftw!! Basically find schools near San Francisco or New York it seems...</p>

<p>^ 600+ miles is near San Francisco?</p>

<p>I found that there were a number of midwestern schools which were very progressive: among them, Grinnell, Oberlin and Macalester. Wonderful places with a long history of promoting social justice!</p>

<p>VASSAR in upstate NY</p>

<p>It might be easier to look for conservative schools and stay away from them. Your list will be extremely short, even when including schools that offer a balanced conservative and liberal student body and faculty. The latter being quite challenging to find. </p>

<p>Fwiw, selecting a college based on the perception of being liberal (or conservative) should be the lowest in your list of criteria. For instance, it would be a lot more interesting and instructive for a conservative to be at Cal or Reed than at Bob Jones.</p>

<p>Evergreen.</p>

<p>I wouldn't attempt to shield yourself from differing cultures and positions in your choice of college.</p>

<p>Well, I'm gay, so I'm trying to choose a college that would be accepting of me, and where a won't face any discrimination. Also, I like how Berkeley has a lot of activists, and would like to go to a college where I can get involved in things like that, so what colleges would you say match that description? Any of theses (my top choices): Cornell, Tufts, Stanford, Emory, Rice, Harvey Mudd.</p>

<p>thanks</p>

<p>Well in that case, Notre Dame.</p>

<p>actually jk you should probably stay away from there.</p>

<p>Another very liberal midwestern LAC is Earlham College.</p>

<p>BTW, assuming that your name is descriptive, the LACs have an excellent record at getting their students into grad schools of all kinds, much better than the publics.</p>

<p>New College in Florida. Assuming you don't mind hipsters and drugs less innocuous than pot. It's a really chill school, quite small. My cousin goes there and loves it, completely accepting of gay students. I've never seen a place quite like it.</p>

<p>There are a lot of very liberal colleges and universities in the U.S, but, very few of the caliber you are describing have embraced Occupy Wall Street, for example, as wholeheartedly as Berkeley and Wesleyan: </p>

Speaks volumes about the schools!</p>

<p>^ xig, we know you just love Berkeley...</p>

<p>American University in DC. FYI - That university has become much more selective in admissions over the past few years, which is partially expained by the fact that DC is a much more fun place for young people than in the past.</p>

<p>Also, you have to consider a university within context. For example, UNC- Chapel Hill is not liberal compared to Berkeley, but is liberal for North Carolina.</p>

<p>Sometimes I do. Sometimes not so much! People deliberating seeking martyrdom by violating very simple instructions do not seem too darn impressive, especially when pretending to be highly educated and failing to understand than the other side of the baton is held by a government employee in uniform. Soon you start thinking about a proctologist joke!</p>

<p>By the way ... </p>
