Jock and Philosophical Colleges

Jock

NE

Boston College

The city of Boston loves its sports teams, so it’s no surprise that Boston College students also love their sports, both varsity level and intramural. So many students participate in intramural sports that there are often lines to sign up. Varsity sports also thrive as students love to attend as many games as possible.

Cornell University

Cornell University is surprisingly very athletic, especially for an Ivy League school. The men’s hockey team is among the best in the country and Cornell wrestling is equally strong. The campus is so large that students have plenty of room to throw a Frisbee or kick a ball around, and many do. Intramural sports are also huge at Cornell.

Penn State

Football is an especially big deal at Penn State, and students often tailgate the entire weekend of a big game. Intramurals are not forgotten either, and there are often tournament days dedicated to intramural sports.

Middlebury College

Middlebury College is great at some non-conventional college sports. Being located so far north, winter sports like skiing and hockey are very popular among students. Students love intramural sports as well and one of the favorites at Middlebury is Quidditch.




S

Duke University

Duke basketball consistently ranks among the best in the country, but Duke has more than just basketball. Duke recruits athletes in all sports, so everything is fun to watch. If you are not much of a competitor, there are plenty of intramural sports to play for fun.

University of Oklahoma

University of Oklahoma is a football school. Football is life for many students who go to Oklahoma and then camp out to attend games. However, the university considers all athletics very important, so intramural and club sports are available for everyone to play.

University of Texas

University of Texas Austin thrives on sports. Football, basketball, baseball, and swimming are all very successful programs for varsity athletes. Fraternities and Sororities compete against each other in intramural sports, so there is always a show to watch if you don’t feel like trying it out yourself.

Clemson University

Clemson University lives football. The students are very enthusiastic about all the teams and will cheer for any sports. Intramural sports at Clemson are more than just exercise, many are an opportunity to try something new from airsoft to rock climbing.




MW

University of Michigan

University of Michigan is known for its football team, although all sports thrive there. Students are very enthusiastic about sports at Michigan and school spirit runs through their blood.

Notre Dame

University of Notre Dame is home to the “Fighting Irish” and the students definitely know how to fight.  Whether on the football field or in the ice rink, ND students radiate with school spirit.

Ohio State University

Ohio State University lives and breathes football. The team is renowned across the country, but the school promotes all types of sports. Intramural sports are especially popular and students can find any sport imaginable to play. Ice hockey is particularly popular for beginners.

W

University of Southern California

USC is home of the Trojans. Football is amazing at USC, but every sport is represented, even at the non-varsity level. Students participate in a wide variety of intramural sports and join clubs with their friends. There is no shortage of sports at USC and there is also a long standing rivalry with UCLA that makes cross town games especially exciting for students and alumni. .

UCLA

UCLA is such as large school that a student can find any sporting event imaginable. The weather is so great that bored students can go to a local park or down to the beach to play some ball. Varsity sports are excellent as well and the USC/UCLA cross town rivalry makes any sporting event more fun.

University of Oregon

University of Oregon boasts some of the best teams in many sports. Students are full of spirit for their Ducks, and they always rank highly in football. Intramurals are open for anyone and everything is represented.





Philosophical/Intellectual

NE

Amherst College

Amherst College has an open curriculum, which means that students do not have any core requirements. Students are free to take whichever classes they want and think that they will enjoy. The point is to make sure that students graduate as well-rounded individuals.

Brown University

Brown University allows students to create their own majors and take whatever classes they want. A Brown student will never have to take a class or subject that he does not enjoy. As a well-known liberal institution, Brown fosters academic and philosophical discussion to help students grow.

Yale University

You can find any type of student at Yale University, but almost all are insanely smart. Students will freely discuss politics and philosophy while engaging in “verbal sparring.” If you want to argue with smart people, then Yale is the school for you.

Middlebury College

Middlebury College is a great little school that emphasizes developing well-rounded students. Students are encouraged to try a little bit of everything, whether it will be useful later in life or not.





S

Rice University

Rice University is a relatively small school, so students and teachers get to know each other very well, very quickly. Rice is always ranked among the top universities in America, and the academics drip into everyday student life.

New College of Florida

New College of Florida is a hidden gem in the south. This liberal arts college is similar to Brown University in that it lets students create their own academic paths. Students are also not graded on a traditional A-F scale, which many students love. The school’s goal is to create educated, well-rounded citizens.



MW

Carleton College

Carleton College offers students some of everything. As a liberal arts school, students take basic classes is every academic field, but the goal is to have students who will be prepared for anything. Students are also very happy to be there and love to learn.

Northwestern University

Northwestern gives students the opportunity to design their own, unique majors. Northwestern is known for its communications department, so with many journalists in training, a student is bound to stir up a few arguments and debates. If you enjoy discussion and current events, NU would be a great fit.

Washington University in St. Louis

Washington University in St. Louis is an amazing school that often gets overlooked. The students are very enthusiastic about being there and enjoy learning. When surrounded by so many smart people, it is bound to rub off.

W

Claremont McKenna College

Claremont McKenna College is a very politically oriented school, so debate about policy and philosophy are an integral part of the curriculum. Students at CMC love to debate and are not afraid to voice their opinions. In an election season, debate watching parties are popular in the dorms where groups of students will cluster around a TV and all watch the candidates while providing their own student commentary.

Stanford

Stanford is full of intelligent people from around the world. From discussions about Plato and Sapho to friendly arguments about food, Stanford will provide a great environment.

Pomona College

Students at Pomona College love academics. The school requires all students to take classes in every field before choosing a major, so that no one over-specializes. Classrooms foster debate, and students often carry the discussions to the dorms.
