Auburn University was named by the Princeton Review as the most conservative school in the country.

Auburn University has the most conservative student body of any college in the nation, according to the Princeton Review’s annual rankings, released this Monday.

In contrast, Bennington College in Vermont, is the nation’s most liberal school, according to the study.

Rounding out the top ten most conservative schools for 2013 is Texas A&M, Grove City College, Hillsdale College, College of the Ozarks, University of Dallas, Thomas Aquinas College, The United States Military Academy (West Point), Hampden-Sydney College, and the United States Naval Academy (Annapolis).

Auburn University was named as the nation's most conservative school. 

The most liberal student bodies, according to Princeton Review, are Sarah Lawrence College (NY), Warren Wilson College, Bard College, Marlboro College, New College of Florida, Macaelester College, College of the Atlantic, Vassar College, and Skidmore College.

Meanwhile, Becker College in Worcester, Mass., was ranked as having the least politically active student body while George Washington University in Washington D.C., captured the number one spot as most active student body.

According to the Princeton Review’s website, the rankings were generated through an online survey of an average of 333 students from every school mentioned in the book. The survey was composed of 80 questions scaled on a 1-5 “Excellent” to “Awful” scale.

The ranking accompanies the Review’s annual release of their book the "Best 378 Colleges: 2014 Edition" which includes a variety of other attributes such as campus life, the social scene, and the school’s with the best financial aid packages.
