    Definitely visit the campus, especially if you're out of state (like me). I'm from Colorado, and Virginia is extremely different. Going from the dryness of Colorado to the intense humidity was shocking. However, I like the weather in Virginia and really like the area around the campus. This review may not be super helpful since I only did a college visit and haven't attended, but I just wanted to encourage people to visit as well.

    Tour on a day when kids are in class. I went over Thanksgiving break and it was a ghost town. The second time I went, kids were in class and I liked it much more. Also, apply early! You're automatically considered for merit aid if you apply before a certain date.

    Visit! Stay overnight and find out if UR is the best place for you. Look at all the opportunities UR has to offer for freshman like the living learning communities and the programs that allow you to have research your first year! Remember that it is perfectly okay to be homesick for the first few nights(: and keep your head up! If it seems tough at first, take some time to adjust and do not be afraid to ask for help.

    Do not attend if you are at all interested in school spirit, turn out at sporting events or club meetings. Especially do not attend if, like myself, you are interested in the music program. The ensembles are all mixed with community members and students (this might be ok, but I want an all student option) and there is no marching band. The pep band is only at basketball games and has only 15 or so members, most of whom are from the community, not students. Academics are not impressive if you are not in the Business School. Most other departments are above average to average, while anything related to mathematics is hopeless.
