Best university for undergrad (no business but literature or something along those lines - sorry I have no idea of rankings)

Hi guys,

I offered to help my younger sister out by searching for some schools where she could spend 1-2 exchange years. All these universities below are partner-universities of her current school therefore no fees plus living stipend (also admission not the normal route).

She is studying arts (english literature and the such like but also interested in media and pr work). I was just wondering whether somebody of you has any idea which university would be a good option?

My personal taste would be

Berkley,
Penn,
Duke,
Middlebury

all just to the fact that I know the names from BB recruiting..... therefore not a good metric

help me out please

Duke University, Durham, North Carolina
• Hampshire College, Amherst, Massachusetts
• Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana
• Middlebury College, Middlebury, Vermont
• Montana State University, Bozeman, Montana
• Reed College, Portland, Oregon

You could add UoC (University of Chicago) to the list, but its definitely not for everybody.

No one really looks at study abroad programs as a true educational experience, it's more about learning another culture. Send her to CU Boulder, UNC or one of the CA public schools.

Rutgers in Camden. One of the safest and culturally diverse parts of the USA.
