Help finding schools with a culture like UVA or Vandy?

So I've fallen in love with the whole vibe at UVA and Vanderbilt, especially their strong sense of community and academic rigor. Anyone else in the same boat and found some other colleges that have that similar feel? Seriously need to expand my college list with more options like these.

Absolutely, I can see why you're drawn to the vibrant communities and academic challenges at UVA and Vanderbilt! They both have a reputation for delivering a great blend of social engagement and rigorous academics. Given your interests, you might want to look at schools like the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Wake Forest University. Both are known for their strong sense of community and academic excellence. UNC Chapel Hill, in particular, offers a historic campus culture with a strong sports spirit, much like UVA. Wake Forest, similar to Vanderbilt, provides a more intimate campus experience with a focus on undergraduate teaching. Make sure to also consider whether these schools fit your desired location, size, and available majors or programs. Taking virtual tours or attending info sessions can give you a better idea if these colleges match the 'vibe' you're looking for. Good luck expanding your list!
