While UR is always No. 1 to us, it never hurts to be reminded when others recognize the impressive quality of a Richmond education — especially when we’re considered to be one of the nation’s “Hidden Ivies.”

In a recent College Gazette article, we come in at No. 7 among the nation’s top schools that rank high in academics, admissions, financial aid, and student experiences. It notes our transformation over the last 20 years to a “top-tier, national, highly selective liberal arts university,” including nods to our ambitious student body, our first-of-its-kind Jepson School of Leadership Studies, and our signature Richmond Guarantee.

This latest list is just another reason why we’re proud to be Spiders!
