We talk a lot about the value of a Richmond education — and we often get props for it, too. This week, The Princeton Review ranked our stellar Career Services No. 2 in the country as part of its 2020 edition of "The Best 385 Colleges," highlighting just one reason we’re always talking about our value.

Because we pair career services with alumni engagement, we’re not only preparing students for jobs, we’re also tapping into a growing network of Spiders around the world. And did you know that alumni have access to our career services for life?

“Our innovative combination of alumni and career services allows for more comprehensive career development,” said Denise Dwight Smith, assistant vice president of Alumni & Career Services. “Our team is able to further cultivate those relationships to benefit our students through job recruitment, as well as experiential opportunities.” 

But that’s not all — among the more than dozen "Top 20" lists we made, we landed in the top 10 best schools for internships, best-run colleges, most beautiful campus, best athletic facilities, best classroom experience, happiest students, and best quality of life. Talk about value!
