Connecticut has many excellent colleges and universities. Wesleyan, Yale, Trinity, UCONN, Fairfield University, Quinnipiac, U of New Haven, etc etc. All of these colleges and universities are within a 25 mile radius. Connecticut is very open minded, tolerant, somewhat conservative but socially liberal and while the cost of living is higher than most states, it's a bit cheaper than California.

In addition, you're within an hour or so commute to NYC, a two hour drive from Boston, and you have access to the mountains as well as beaches (all within 45 minutes to an hour.)

It really sounds like a place you'd like. Good luck in your search!

I second Austin, TX.

And on that note, Rice in Houston would be an excellent choice.

I've also heard great things about life at Tulane. New Orleans is really getting back on their feet this year, so I can imagine that such a cultural city would be lots of fun for a young person.

Also, speaking of the Bay Area - you forgot Santa Clara. It's a great little LAC.

Sorry if I sounded harsh, but it really is a phrase that I just don't understand. I guess it's because if people accuse me of being "close-minded", they're usually every bit as close-minded in the other direction.
It's okay for people to have polarizing differences, but using terms like that doesn't win the other side over, or even make them want to see your point of view. I just think the term "close-minded" gets thrown around way too much, without people really thinking about it.

Back to the party school discussion.........

Florida International University in Miami.

Overall, Miami is pretty party-conscious with a lot of clubs and bars, with its culture, good location and huge financial headquarters.
