It’s not surprising that the University of Richmond in Richmond, Virginia, is selective in its admissions process.
Academics at University of Richmond are not only rigorous, but also require students to tackle philosophical questions and study and expand across the disciplines.
In the first year, all students take an intensive seminar in the philosophy and literature of different nations.
After that they move on to their major field of study, which could be Business or a subject in the Liberal Arts, Natural or Social Sciences, or Humanities. They can also choose to get their bachelor’s degree at the Jepson School of Leadership Studies, a highly intensive program that combines the study of economics, history, literature, philosophy, politics, psychology and religion.
Research is also a part of the Richmond academic experience and is conducted in various fields including the sciences and the arts.
Campus activities are also highly stimulating. There is a student newspaper, a student radio station, a group of performing arts organizations, multicural groups, religious groups and more.

50% of students gave University of Richmond 5 stars overall.
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.
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.
