The 2009 rankings by U.S. News and World Report have just been released:
VCU's School of the Arts is now ranked 4th overall, up from 6th in 2003. No U.S. public university's arts and design school has ever been ranked this high. VCUarts is still the #1 public university visual arts & design program in the United States!
Over Easter break, Lauren and a friend spent several days enjoying Richmond and VCU. It is still Lauren's top choice, and she's decided to apply to the honors program as well. It's still hard to wrap my mind around the idea that she'll be gone in just a few months. :-(
