I realize that many of year aren't possibly thinking along these lines, but I am looking to create a list of universities and colleges that create a learning environment that places "learning" and "expanding horizons". My husband and I went to University of Southern California, and we really enjoyed our years there. Really, really a lot.
It is a large university, with the feel of a small liberal arts college, at least for the undergrads in the College of LAS. If anyone had a wonderful, enriching and mentoring environment at their college or university, please let us know. We would love if our kids went there, but it's expensive.
Large, small, liberal arts, science-directed, anything. If you had a great college time, put your school on the list.
