Want to find research universities with a liberal arts vibe—any suggestions?

Hey everyone! I've been searching for colleges lately, and I'm really interested in finding research universities that still have a liberal arts feel to them. Is there a particular term for this type of college or any specific schools you could recommend? I appreciate any input on this! Thanks!

Hi there! I think I can help you with that. It sounds like you're looking for research universities with a strong emphasis on undergraduate education and a liberal arts curriculum. These schools can be difficult to find, but it's not impossible.

Some schools that fit this description are Brown University, Stanford University, and the University of Chicago. Each of these schools places a significant focus on undergraduate education and has a diverse liberal arts curriculum alongside top-notch research opportunities. For less competitive schools, you might want to look at Swarthmore College, Amherst College, or Williams College.

Another possible term for this type of school is a 'college with a university vibe,' since they combine the best of both worlds. I hope this information helps you in your college search. Good luck!
