So what are the most conservative colleges in the Northeast? Well, if you want to choose the best college for you and you are conservative, then insider Monkey has recently published an article in which you can find the answers.
What do we mean when we speak about conservative colleges? Conservative colleges are more strict and regimented than liberal colleges and students must follow strict rules. The rules include specific guidelines on physical appearances and conduct as well as less tolerance for alcohol and drug use. Many of the top conservative colleges are Christian colleges that promote Christian values. If you are devoted Christian or consider yourself a conservative, attending a conservative college should be a perfect choice for you. Your religious beliefs will probably be better accepted at conservative college and you are more likely to meet like-minded people who share your political, social and religious beliefs. A lot of professors tend to lean towards the left with 50.3% identified themselves as liberals, 12.4% as far left, 11.5% as conservative and only 0.4% as far right. If you are expressing yourself as a conservative or far right, you should probably look for very conservative colleges where your knowledge will be evaluated by same-minded professors.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked two colleges from their list.
United States Coast Guard Academy is the first one in our list now. Located in New London, Connecticut, United States Coast Guard Academy is one of the smallest service schools. Before students arrive at the Academy, they need to be physically fit and prepared for the hard physical training at the Academy. Similarly to United States Military Academy West Point, this Academy is considered to be conservative because of a very strict military regiment. Colleges of this type require a strict schedule, clothing rules, hairstyles, etc. If you want to know more about the United States Coast Guard Academy, take a look at their Student Handbbok. United States Military Academy West Point is the last one today. Located at West Point, United States Military Academy West Point is not a typical college with typical application procedure, as you can see from the very low acceptance rate. Admissions Committee looks for students who excel not only in their academic scores but also athletic success and leadership motivation. During the admission, besides standard tests, applicants have to pass CFA (The Candidate Fitness Test) test which consists of: B-Ball Throw, Pull-ups, Shuttle Run, Crunches, Push-ups and 1-Mile Run. Students have to follow a very strict regime including prescribed sleeping and studying hours.
