    What to do for fun

    There is plenty to do. Whether going to central for tourism, free events, clubbing or just wandering around. London is a place you will never be bored in. Furthermore you are also able to travel cheaply all over Europe.

    Food and Dining

    The food isn't that great. However most dorm food isn't very great. However there is a Starbucks on campus that is part of the meal plan. Along with this there is a sandwich bar that is very good. Plus there are a lot of surrounding restaurants.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are decent size. They have a good amount of storage, personal heaters,and the usual dorm stuff. Student Affairs who is charge of the dorms constantly has events for students to participate in. They are in a old castle like building and most people say it looks like Hogwarts. Off campus housing is available with apartment based facilities.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes can be demanding and although an accredited American university student's do need to adjust to British teaching methods. However academically they are usually pretty adaptable to your native tongue. Along with this all of the professors are extremely qualified. They all have diverse background in industries, extensive amount of experience and educated by some of the best schools in the world, for instance Harvard, Oxford and London School of Economics.

    Tips for prospective students

    It's always scary to go off to college, especially all the way to London. However just give it chance it's an experience of a lifetime. London is a great place to travel and being here is like studying abroad for four years. You don't just learn academically but you learn about cultures from everywhere. Considering I grew up in LA and its relatively diverse in culture I meet students everyday from different countries at points I have never met anyone from. Furthermore due to the small classes it allows you to really get to know everybody on a personal level and make connections that will last a lifetime.

    Richmond offers a spectacular environment to learn in. This is done through academics and small classes to give focus on each and every student. Along with providing an internationally and culturally diverse setting, where students can learn from students all over the world through experience.
