Videos by OutKick

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.:

  1. American University
  2. Northeastern University (Boston)
  3. University of California-Santa Cruz
  4. University of Vermont
  5. Northwestern University
  6. Stony Brook (New York)
  7. Mount Holyoke College (South Hadley, Mass.)
  8. Independence University (Salt Lake City)
  9. New York University
  10. University of Oregon

  1. Given that the annual cost of many of these Marxist indoctrination centers exceeds the average annual earning power after 10 years, I’d say the taxpayer — who undoubtedly pays for most of these Underwater Basketweaving and Black Racist Militant Homosexual majors — is getting fleeced…

    • Yup that’s right. I am biased but I told my kids don’t go to college to major in some useless bull shit major, go get a professional degree or don’t go at all. There are plenty of trades whereby one can spend a lot less money and make good wages and eventually own their own shop.

  2. White liberals who support an ideology & a party that hates them for their skin color, and will eventually strip them of their privilege…based solely on that skin color. Satisfyingly ironic, but also proof that liberalism is a mental disease. Either that, or white liberals are the dumbest people on earth.
