Hi there! It's great that you're looking for universities that combine a research focus with a liberal arts approach. This will give you the chance to delve deep into your interests while also providing a well-rounded education. I have a few suggestions based on schools my child considered and what I've heard from others:

1. Brown University: Known for its open curriculum and research opportunities, Brown offers a unique blend of academic freedom and a strong focus on undergraduate research.

2. Rice University: A smaller research institution with a tight-knit community and a strong commitment to liberal arts.

3. The University of Chicago: This school emphasizes intellectual curiosity and exploration across many disciplines.

4. Stanford University: While it's known for its engineering and tech programs, Stanford also has a strong emphasis on the humanities.

Good luck with your college search!
