What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
The University of Richmond has a large suburban campus right in the middle of the active and corky city of Richmond. The classes are small, engaging, and fun! The social atmosphere, while not for everyone, is low key and student organizations are attempting to diversify it.
Kylie from Perkasie, PA
Great small school for students who want all their professors to know them by name; all my classes were about 20 kids!
Professors care about teaching, not about passing you.
Most students are hired right out of school or go to get additional degrees, they help a lot with getting summer internships.
