For purposes of fairness, we are including some lake schools in our list of Near-Beach Schools-those that are beach-friendly, have sand and sun.

Beach Schools, or Near-Beach Schools, are not to be confused with Ocean Schools:

Ocean Schools are those colleges located near oceans, but without the “Beach scene/atmosphere. For instance, the many wonderful schools in Boston are near the ocean, but are not beach schools, and, they generally do not have warm weather conducive to NEAR BEACH Schools requirements. Well, maybe 15 minutes in the summer.

ON the other hand, if you go whale watching at Gloucester, you see whales 99.9% of the time. Thrilling.

The University of Prince Edward Island, while in a beautiful place, and surrounded by ocean, is not a beach school.

The University of Hawaii, on the other hand, also on an island, and also surrounded by ocean, IS a Beach School.

You will notice that California State University at Humboldt, while located on the Pacific Ocean, with beautiful beaches, is an Ocean School, not a Beach School. It is way too cold up there to make the cut.

(Reliable sunshine is required)

Note: The schools in San Francisco are right on the edge, definition-wise. People DO go there year-round, there are great beaches right in town, and plenty of sand and surf.
