July 7, 2021

UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND ─ The Fiske Guide to Colleges, a leading college guidebook, has selected the University of Richmond for its 2022 edition.

The guide, which has been published for 38 years, is a source of information for college-bound students and their parents and includes quotes from students. Each year the guide profiles more than 300 of the “best and most interesting” colleges in the country, including information about strong programs and popular majors at each college, as well as academic, social, and quality-of-life ratings.

About UR, the guide notes, “Business and a unique school for leadership studies are featured offerings, along with a strong global emphasis.”

The guide also highlighted:

  • Students at the University of Richmond enjoy an “intellectual rigor that includes small classes, close friendships, and lots of teamwork.”
  • UR’s Digital Scholarship Lab “allows students to mine huge databases in order to generate new knowledge.”
  • Sophomore Scholars in Residence program that is “especially sought-after” is a living-learning program that combines a yearlong interdisciplinary course, a group capstone project in the spring, and opportunities for community-based activities and domestic or international travel.

“Richmond is working hard to push its vision of preprofessional education shaped by commitments to the liberal arts, leadership, and community involvement,” the guide notes.
