As you can probably imagine, there aren’t many schools which would even qualify for this title.

Liberty University Ranks No. 1 ‘Most Conservative College’ in America
Liberty University has been ranked as the most conservative college in America, according to Niche’s ranking of the most conservative four-year higher education institutions in the United States.
Niche, a website that analyzes dozens of public data sets and millions of reviews to formulate rankings of the best schools and neighborhoods in the U.S., has unveiled its “2017 Most Conservative Colleges in America” list.
At No. 1 on the list is Liberty University, a private nonprofit Christian university in Lynchburg, Virginia, which was founded by evangelist Jerry Falwell Sr. in 1971. The school is now being led by President Jerry Falwell Jr, one of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s most prominent evangelical supporters.
Niche gave the school an overall grading of “A-,” while giving it an “A” for diversity, “A” for student life, “A+” for dorms, “A-” for academics and “B” for professors.
According to the website, there are two main factors that are taken into account when considering the rankings. Student surveys asking their own political leanings while in college accounted for an 80 percent weight in the rankings, while student surveys about the political opinions of others students at the college accounted for a 20 percent weight in the rankings.
