Students Republicans can finally be the construction of a clique to take into account such as the Young America’s Foundation organizes a national conference this week for young conservative in the Reagan Stay Center in Santa Barbara, California
The group will use the forum to display their latest list of top colleges in the U.S. conservatives – a lineup that includes 14 colleges and universities, including Thomas More College, Grove City College, College of the Ozarks, and Harding University Hillsdale College.
The group is not offering a list of colleges to avoid.
“That would be very few schools,” he joked YAF Vice President Patrick Coyle.
YAF But three day event, which begins Thursday, is the latest effort to try to guide a conservative revival of student activism in the “age of Obama.” The conference is billed as a place where high school students who had the bug can converge to draw conservatives to organize and be active.
“Conservatives are a kind of counterculture new today,” Coyle said.
Students in the Reagan Ranch High School Conference Plan to listen to a series of conservative school teachers, as well as semi-celebrities as President Reagan’s son Michael and Rep. Dana Rohrabacher. Coyle said the goal is to teach students about conservatism, but also give advice on how to organize in high school and later in college.
About 120 students are expected to attend the three day meeting. Not exactly the kind of youth movement that was in the Johnson and Nixon administrations, but the conference is part of a series of attempts to bring together and energize students renewed interest in conservative causes.

At that time, he said, the school administration was giving her grief while trying to establish a new club “conservative” with other students.
“Our director did not want us to bring any speakers, the thought of all the events of activism was too controversial,” he said.

“We want our students, similarly, be at odds with the campus left,” Coyle said. “We want to promote a bold conservatism, but of course I want to do it in a smart way to bring people to our side.”
