Love wearing suits and ties to high school? Enjoy golfing on the weekends? Looking to make a million dollars and achieve the true American dream? Maybe Alex P. Keaton was your idle since all of those Family Ties re-runs you’ve been watching as a kid?
Maybe, just maybe — a Conservative College is in your future, young American! Lucky for you, we’ve gone through the trouble to compile a list of the most conservative colleges throughout the American university system. Well ok, we didn’t really compile them, we got it from the Princeton review — but come on, it took effort on our part!
Top 10 Most Conservative Colleges in America, from the Princeton Review:
1). Texas A&M (TX)
2). Hillsdale College (MI)
3). Thomas Aquinas College (CA)
4). Grove City College (PA)
5). University of Dallas (TX)
6). College of the Ozarks (MO)
7). US Merchant Marine Academy (NY)
8). Auburn University (AL)
9). United States Naval Academy (MD)
10). Hampden-Sydney College
Not sure how much faith to put into this list of conservative colleges — I don’t see Yale, I don’t see the US Air Force Academy, and I don’t see any of the prominent Republican schools in the DC area. Still, if you are a young American looking to improve yourself, and attend school in a place where you won’t be harassed by ex-hippy professors for your conservative values — These universities will be a good start. I’d encourage you to do your own due diligence and make sure the school you choose is right for you.
Picking a good conservative university is only half the battle, because after you get accepted you’re going to have to find a way to pay for your education. Resist the temptation to take out too many student loans, and remember to always pick a concentration that will pay dividends when you get out. I’m sorry, but political science doesn’t usually pay well — even if you’ve graduated from the most prominent conservative college! Do not rack up $90k of student loans, and then wonder why the degree you got in art is not paying off.
We’ll publish another article in the near future on what areas of study will pay off the most for young conservatives, and how you can maximize the return on investment from a college education. Remember that there is more than one way to be an educated man or woman, and going to college is just one component of your education. Never stop learning, never stop asking questions, always seek proof and truth. And in the words of Steve Jobs, “Stay Crazy, Stay Foolish”.
