What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
Academics are very rigorous. Most international students express that their study abroad experience at Richmond is more difficult than their university study in Ireland, China, or Africa. However, the academic rigor is not unmanageable. If you are passionate about your studies and put forth a solid effort, you will be successful. A bonus is that professors are always there to meet with you and help you.
Kylie from Perkasie, PA
In business or science, the classes are always difficult and you learn a lot. I can't say much for the humanities, but the people I know who are majors always seem to go on to do great things.

If you're a science student, be prepared to spent most of your life studying and working in Gottwald. The first year typically isn't bad but by the third year you will be used to sleeping on the couches inside Gottwald (the science building) as much as in your own bed.
Megan from Butler, PA
from what I have read challenging but teachers are very hands on with your learning process and have a great interest in your success
Lauren from Easton, PA
Students are constantly being intellectually challenged by their professor. Each student receives instructions to help motivate and develop high expectations for their academic progress. The syllabus depicts exceptions and offers a variety of resources to aid the students. Resources provided are; SGA, Academic Skills Center for support, Career Services for choosing a major, Speech Center for preparation and practice for public expression, Writing Center consultants and the Online Writing Lab (OWL) another free service. This University offers a host of invaluable resources to aid their students in achieving academic rigor.
