In the divisive age in which we live, it can be challenging to find the right college. After all, we’d all like to be around like-minded people who share our core values and beliefs. That’s why College Values Online went on the hunt for the 30 best colleges for young Democrats. Fortunately for young liberals, academia tends to lean to the left, so we narrowed down our list based on the following factors: 

  • Inclusive Campuses: Democrat-friendly campuses tend to be inclusive of all types of people, and have the social services to prove it. 
  • On-Campus Clubs and Organizations: The colleges and universities on our list offer on-campus clubs and organizations that appeal to those students who are politically minded. Clubs that might appeal to young liberals include College Democrats, Pride Alliance, Students for a Democratic Society, and more. 
  • Environmental Awareness: The schools on our list have taken steps to reduce their carbon footprint and form habits that contribute to the betterment of the environment. 
  • Other: We also considered other factors that might appeal to the young Democrat, such as notable alumni, curriculum, majors and minors offered, special events that occur on campus, and historical significance.
