Preppiest Colleges

CULTURE  |  OLD BOYS CLUB  |  Preppiest College& Universities


Following on from my recent post the "Preppiest Schools List", I have put together a list of the preppiest universities and colleges. This list is based on a number of factors which include the quality of the education, the renowned of it's faculty, the number of high profile graduates, international reputation, admissions rates and the preppiness of the campus.


The preppiest institutions will always be the Ivy League colleges, the Seven Sisters, the NESCAC colleges, Little Ivies, Chicago, MIT, Oxbridge, the Old Four, Stanford and the ancient British and Irish universities (mostly Russell Group members), but there are plenty of other notables as included below.

Let me know what you think or if there are any outstanding institutions that I have missed.
