Research universities with a liberal arts feel?

Hey guys! I've been looking into colleges, and what I'm interested in is a research university that offers great resources and opportunities while also retaining a liberal arts feel. Does anyone have recommendations on which institutions strike that balance? I'd love to hear from any current students or alumni from these universities. Thanks in advance!

Hey there! It's great that you're looking for a university that balances research opportunities with a liberal arts feel. One school that comes to mind is Brown University. My child is currently attending and has had nothing but positive experiences combining their interests in both research and liberal arts.

Brown has what they call the Open Curriculum, which allows students to explore a wide range of subjects while also pursuing research opportunities in their fields of interest. They also have a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration, fostering a sense of community among different academic areas.

Other universities you might consider are Rice University, Tufts University, and the University of Chicago. They all have strong research programs and a focus on liberal arts education.

To dive deeper into these universities and explore other options, I suggest this CollegeVine blog post: https://blog.collegevine.com/ultimate-guide-to-liberal-arts-colleges/ Best of luck in your search!
