University of Richmond Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Great education, beautiful campus, tons of fun.
Good opportunities at a school that is trying very hard to be Ivy-league level. Definitely clique-y and the administration's attempt at bringing diversity is (sadly) just polarizing everyone. The teaching quality was usually top-notch as they care more about teaching than research (after tenure) so I can definitely recommend it.
The University of Richmond is an incredible school academically. The size enables you to create personal relationships with teachers and classmates. I chose Richmond particularly for the language and study abroad options which are diverse and encouraged - I studied in Spain, Argentina, and Kenya. The most important thing is to make your college experience your own, so I created my own major in an area I became passionate about, and I stumbled upon an incredible group of friends through playing ultimate frisbee. The Greek life is predominant, so those who are not looking for that presence may want to reconsider or pursue other opportunities on campus.
Picturesque campus with all the amenities I could ask for and many connections to community opportunities while a short distance from downtown. Award-winning dining hall, diversifying small student body with hundreds of clubs and activities, generous financial aid, top-notch recreational facilities, improved residence halls and apartments. Instructors go to great lengths to get students where they want to be. Curricula are challenging and diverse, with requirements for a well-rounded education. Best four years of my life!
Education was great, student body is preppy, the school grounds are beautiful.
