How about Bard? Or Bennington

He might want to consider Brandeis University, in Waltham, Mass., where 
I went (still using its e-mail for SHAKSPER and miscellaneous, and still 
using their Online Library Database!). They have everything at this 
small liberal arts school (last I checked it was, just below NYU -- in 
the thirties -- for best schools in the country). They gave me a really 
great scholarship, though I was not the best student in high school by a 
long shot (I think this had to do with a really creative essay in the 
application). The school has science and business, art and theater, a 
music program, great literature professors (William Flesch, Thomas King, 
Mary-Baine Campbell, Laura Quinney) and history professors (David 
Hackett Fischer, William Kappel, Govind Sreenivasan) and is great for 
its proximity to Boston, if one ever gets restless.
