As someone who went to a well-known “rich school,” I can tell you first-hand how much better my college experience was. We had nice facilities, top-notch professors, and a good chunk of scholarships to be earned. Unfortunately, SMU isn’t the richest school in America, only having a paltry $1B endowment (Sherwood Blount must’ve stopped donating). So, which schools reign supreme when it comes to money?

Business Insider compiled the endowment numbers provided by The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), a US government organization that collects and analyzes education data to come up with the 30 richest schools in the country. Here are the results.

30. University of Washington – $2,915,057,707
29. Universit of Minnesota – $2,992,707,059
28. Brown University – $2,999,749,000
27. University of Wisconsin – $3,133,196,699
26. University of Texas – $3,376,824,061
25. Johns Hopkins University – $3,392,529,000
24. New York University – $3,435,034,000
23. University of Pittsburgh – $3,470,665,237
22. Ohio State University – $3,595,323,149
21. Vanderbilt University – $4,046,250,000
20. Dartmouth College – $4,468,219,698
19. University of Southern California – $4,593,014,000
18. Cornell University – $4,646,133,725
17. Rice University – $5,553,717,000
16. University of Virginia – $5,876,310,216
15. University of Chicago – $6,539,289,712
14. Washington University in St. Louis – $6,719,449,000
13. Emory University – $6,981,307,921
12. Duke University – $7,036,776,000
11. Northwestern University – $7,501,116,000
10. University of Notre Dame – $8,189,096,000
9. Columbia University – $9,223,047,000
8. University of Pennsylvania – $9,582,335,000
7. University of Michigan – $9,603,919,000
6. Texas A&M University – $10,521,034,492
5. Massachusetts Institute of Technology – $12,425,131,000
4. Princeton University – $20,576,361,000
3. Stanford University – $21,466,006,000
2. Yale University – $23,858,561,000
1. Harvard University – $36,429,256,000

Not shocked at all to see Texas A&M having such a large endowment despite not being the greatest academic school. A lot of rich donors flowing through that school. Also, how about Harvard just dominating the competition, beating second-place Yale by nearly $13B? Harvard, well-endowed.
