Eric Beers, Ph.D. College and Career Counselor, Air Academy High School
I think the Washington DC area schools are strategically located to promote politically active students…so you can’t go wrong with American, Georgetown and George Washington. Others that I really like (in no particular order) include: Bates, Brown, Berkeley, UCLA, Claremont-McKenna schools, CU-Boulder, Grinnell, University of Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, NYU, Princeton, Oberlin, Ohio University, Oregon, Washington, Wellesley, and WIsconsin.

Lots of colleges are fairly politically active places. Washington DC attracts many politically involved students. American and George Washington are known for this. So is Columbia in New York, Harvard in Cambridge and the University of Wisconsin in Madison. It is typical that many of the flagship state universities are fairly active.
