The Houston Chronicle ranks Texas colleges and universities on a liberal/conservative scale. Not surprisingly, Texas A&M is ranked as the most conservative institution in the state. On the liberal side, most Aggies would have chosen UT-Austin (or TU as the disrespectful Aggies would have it). Wrong! UT-Austin ranks as the 7th most liberal school in the Red state. St. Edwards University in Austin is the most liberal college in Texas.
