North Central University-- very conservative bible college in the heart of a very, very liberal city (Minneapolis).

I also agree that UNC/Chapel Hill is the most liberal university in the South. Gay culture is huge there.

Pretty much any secular university is going to be very liberal. Conservative universities are going to be your Bible colleges. An anomaly used to be University of Southern California, but in the past decade even that has moved to the left.

What about A&M? I think its the most conservative of public universities.

There are a large number of conservative/fundamentalist bible colleges in Los Angeles County (which contains the city of Los Angeles, of course). More than y'all would think. The most conservative of the bunch, as far as I know, is Master's College.

University of Southern California is not a conservative university but in comparison to many universities (especially the one's I'm familiar with being from the Northeast, like Brown, Umass, Brandeis, Harvard, MIT, Emmanuel, etc.) it is pretty conservative, and in the middle of Los Angeles, which is a pretty liberal city, though it doesn't hold a candle to the liberal cities farther north (Bay Area, Seattle.)

A friend of mine from high school went to North Central. Sort of a creepy place...

Here's my pet peeve- Austinites thinking that theirs is the only UT:

Quote:
UT is most likely one of the most (if not the most) liberal university in the southern US. Austin may have something to do with it, given that UT gets most of its students from within Texas
I'll admit this poster gave enough context that you'd know which UT.

But occasionally on other boards I'll mention UT or UT students and Austinites automatically assume I'm their neighbor.

UTK doesn't really belong in this discussion because both it and Knoxville tend to the moderate. But I have noticed in the last decade or so that UTK is trending more conservative and Knoxville a little more liberal.

I think this is because the student body at UTK is more and more coming from upper income homes. Could this be happening at UNC?

What do you mean I "gave enough context"? I explicitly said UT-Austin on the first page of the thread.

And most Austinites do know their are other 'UT's. But because UT-Austin has the most prominence nationally of any of the other UTs, people tend to assume you mean UT-Austin. It's the same way with the use of the term New York. When people say I'm from New York, many people assume NYC, when in actuality, the person is referring to the state of New York.

Please don't get so upset - I even included your reference to Austin in your quote.

Like I said - this is something I've encountered with other posters and on other forums:

.

So I guess I'm guilty of the same thing.
