#PHSfit College of the Day: University of Richmond

The University of Richmond is a very selective liberal arts university, located about three hours south of here. It is about the same size as Bowie State or Penn State's Altoona campus,  and has an active division one athletic program. Such a selective liberal arts program would be a reasonable option for a student who is considering Loyola, Gettysburg, Lehigh, or Bucknell.

#PHSfit College of the Day: Saint Joseph's University

Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia operates from the Jesuit principle that one should strive to "live greater." The campus is located in a historic section of the city, and about the same size as York College. It would be a similar experience to going to Loyola College in Philadelphia, but with basketball being the big athletic program, rather than lacrosse. Most admitted students score in the 550 range on the SAT.
