On cold days, I wear my University of Richmond sweatshirt that says “Richmond” on the front of it. I would say that most folks in the bay area think that it has something to do with Richmond, CA. No one knows anything about the University of Richmond out here on the west coast except for a few runs the basketball team has done in the NCAA tournament.
That being said, I was pleasantly surprised to find the University of Richmond Business School ranked #20 in Business Week’s top 50 Undergraduate Business Schools. Also included in the list are the big guys such as Wharton, Stern, Sloan and Haas. (I graduated with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Business Administration) Despite its small size, it’s nice to see Richmond getting recognized with the big guys.
