<p>Well folks, these are the 20 wealthiest universities in the country. Anyone else surprised about how rich Rice and Notre Dame are? :D</p>

<p>These are all rough approximations though as many of these schools have external sources of money to boost their already impressive endowment totals (Duke has The Duke Endowment, Cornell's land grant school receive NY state funding, UVA gets additional revenue from the state of Virginia, etc. etc.).</p>

<p>Only 75 American universities and college systems have endowments over $1 Billion so the wealth is truly concentrated in a few select schools.</p>

<p>Not surprised at Rice's high per capita rankings. It was well into the 70s (maybe 80s) before Rice began charging tuition. Even today, Rice's tuition is somewhat lower than its peers, under $35K annually (tuition only).</p>
