Political leanings of Northwest colleges

So I was reading an obituary written about the actor William Windom. I always like to see if someone's appearance in “The Twilight Zone” will be mentioned. It was.

But the thing that caught my eye was the fact that the Citadel in South Carolina and Antioch in Ohio were among two of the colleges where Windom studied.

Talk about schools on opposite ends of the political/attitudinal spectrum.

Anyway, that made me wonder. If we restricted ourselves to colleges in the Northwest, what two institutions are most unlikely to show up on one student's academic record?

Maybe Reed or The Evergreen and a conservative church school?
