American University in Washington D.C. has been identified as the most liberal university in the United States, according to a study from the college website Niche, as relayed by 24/7 Wall St.
Not surprisingly, the majority of colleges that meet the criteria are located on the coasts, or northeast portion of the U.S., which are largely considered Democratic areas.
“Among students using (Niche), 86% feel the political beliefs of campus as a whole are either liberal or very liberal. Just 12% of students associate themselves with the Republican Party,” 24/7 Wall St. reported.
So based on the findings, some may consider American University to be largely, well, anti-American.
Here’s a look at the entire top 10, as relayed by 24/7 Wall St.:
- American University
- Northeastern University (Boston)
- University of California-Santa Cruz
- University of Vermont
- Northwestern University
- Stony Brook (New York)
- Mount Holyoke College (South Hadley, Mass.)
- Independence University (Salt Lake City)
- New York University
