Overall Rating

The University of Richmond is a wonderful school where I believe I am getting a great education. Along with being academically challenged, I am surrounded by lots of great people and there is always fun things to do. I am in a sorority and love having so many more people to support me and be there for me. I have never felt unsafe on campus and although my home is many hours away, I feel like Richmond is my home now.


Overall Rating

I liked the atmosphere and how the classrooms are smaller. Teachers can be able to interact with the students. The food there was also great. There was plenty food there for everyone to enjoy. The most memorable was the tour. We got to see were the students lived and the classrooms and the beautiful lake.
