I Need to Transfer! If you know of any Good, Liberal Colleges in the Midwest I could use your help!?

Deal Score0

Hello Everyone!
So here is my situation: I am currently at a small, very religious, all women’s university with about 20 ish credits. My problem is that I am hemorrhaging money to attend this University and it is just not the right fit… I am not religious, most of the women I have met so far are pretty yuppie and narrow minded and instead of worthwhile campus groups and activities we have things like “Glee” tv night. It’s all driving me a little crazy. I had never intended on going to an all women’s or a religiously affiliated school, but many things- primarily a huge grant and an alumni scholarship, brought me here. Anyway, now I am looking to transfer to a new school next year in hopes of finding a better fit. Because I am still young- 19, and plan relocating to a new place, it is important to me to go to a school that has somewhat of a campus community and does not feel like the 13th grade. Here are some of the things I am looking for:
– Liberal campus community
– 4 year
– Co-ed
– The cheaper the better
– Diverse
– Smaller classes
– Preferably some place with an atmosphere of learning, not partying
– Preferably in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, or Illinois

I understand that this might be a lot to ask for, so if a school doesn’t quite fit that is fine. Also- I am currently a double major in Education and Psychology, with a minor in Sociology, I hope to study abroad, and I have a GPA of 3.8 and ACT score of 30
Thank you very much for your help and suggestions!

    The U of Wisconsin has a large system of campuses that will fit your needs.

    Miami University in Ohio. It is the best public university in the MidWest. Small classes, rural but very intellectual atmosphere (they even have their own opera). Great study abroad opportunities. Co-ed. Like 95% of the student body lives on campus in dorms or houses. Great comraderie. 30% greek life. Feels almost like a huge mature high school, minus the complete disregard for education. It feels like a small city, rather than like a college in a city.

    My son went to the University of Illinois and loved it. They have a great psychology department, the campus is diverse, and although the students party on the weekends, it’s a very serious learning environment from Sunday through Thursday night.

    Also, check out Carleton College in Minnesota. It’s much smaller than Illinois, but I have heard great things about that school.

    And to the poster that thinks Miami, OH is the best public university in the midwest, get real. Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin are the best 3 public schools in that region.
