    This is a beautiful campus, both in regards to the aesthetics of it as well as the people attending. My family and I were welcomed with open arms and all our questions were answered to our satisfaction. I hope to be accepted and be a part of the rising freshman class!

    Inclusive: after finding my niche of friends in my living learning community and program, I really felt like UR was my home because of how friendly everyone was. Rewarding: only here was I offered a guarantee to have the opportunity to do research on any topic within the Science or Math realm the summer before my freshman year of college. Time consuming: times flies by when you're having as they say; of course classes take up a huge portion of my time, but so does keeping up your social life. Which is not always a bad thing, but it definitely is hard to focus when literally nearly all of your hall mates are you best friends--which is why time management is very necessary.

    I am personally very disappointed in this school. We lack any kind of real school spirit, clubs and activities have almost nobody show up to meetings, the musical ensembles on campus are miniscule in the size of their membership, and the academics, while difficult, are not impressive for any major outside of the Business School. Looking to transfer out to a bigger school that will hopefully have a student body that cares about activities, has some school spirit, and frankly cares about things other than themselves.

    I have attended the University of Richmond for several years and had several outstanding experiences. The professors exude excellence, passion and commitment to their students. You are inspired through their knowledge, creativity and valuable insight. All aspects of the University are supportive.

    UR has a place for everyone, but its largest populations are involved with sports teams and Greek life. Most of my peers work hard to make good grades, and the library is always full of students even at 1 AM. The food is great; the academics are pretty average, not too hard and not too easy.

    UR is worth the money! The experiences, attention and opportunity here are like none others. Richmond challenges and supports its students. I'm a proud Alumnus!

    University of Richmond is by far, the best school I have visited so far in my college search. The campus is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the academic opportunities are endless. I hope I get accepted there!
