    I am SO glad I went to Richmond. You wouldn't think a school this great even existed xD I'm not kidding when I say it's incredible. Can't imagine being at another university. One love, one RIchmond! ...Continue reading

    UR is an amazing school full of dedicated students, brilliant professors, and an understanding and active administration. While many students party hard, they always seem to be able to put that aside and achieve the high standards the university sets. Oh, and its the most beautiful college campus I've ever seen. The classes are wonderful, the professors care about you they lay the world at your feet and ensure that you have access to every single opportunity you want. The social scene is so fun, I'm involved in Greek life (both in a sorority and business fraternity) but you don't have to be in one in order to have fun. ...Continue reading

    Richmond is a beautiful campus in a cute, quirky city. The brochures aren't lying about the financial support or student-faculty ratio. Students can get into a bubble of sorts, but most of them are friendly. UR has done right by me and I don't regret coming here at all. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 3/5
    Awesome school! Believe me when I say the sky is the limit here, and you're gonna be doing a lot of the climbing. However, the faculty are dedicated to your success and will fully invest in you. There is no place like UR. The culture is an education in itself, and if you pass you're ready for a life well lived ...Continue reading

    Extremely friendly people the campus is beautiful. the school is beautiful and my classes are small and challenging. the administration allowed me to create my own major and I am very pleased I feel i am getting the education i really want. this semester i am going to Denmark and there were many other choices. Fantastic program for study abroad. ...Continue reading

    Once you find friends and a good major, time will pass pretty quickly :) the classes are small and the professors make time after class hours to meet with students if they have questions. there's a lot to do on the weekends even for those who don't like to party like me :) ...Continue reading

    Nice looking school, but a lot of apathy. Oddly hard to get into the city, but otherwise good location. Good employment opportunities, but no good extracurricular opportunities at all. Numerous clubs have fallen apart on campus, musical ensembles are small, and art is not a big deal. Preppy people Academics depend on major. I ended up transferring. ...Continue reading

    This is a great school that I chose to attend over several others that are ranked higher by US news. Couldn't ask for a more perfect place to go to school. It's beautiful, fun, and has a friendly atmosphere. The class sizes are small from day one. For example my calc 1 class only has 25 people in it. Seriously, I'm in love with being here. ...Continue reading

  • Overall school rating 4/5
    So happy i came here It's a southern school but you won't be hard pressed to find fellow students from the Northeast. Great teaching quality and the Robins School of Business is top notch. The facilities staff make sure the grounds are always clean and beautiful, no matter what season it is. The facilities and classrooms are top-notch and always clean and up-to-date. The internet is spotty, but when you are connected, it's extremely fast and moderately reliable. ...Continue reading

    Awesome school, so glad I chose it! I couldn't see myself anywhere else. I've made great friends! The campus is gorgeous and most people here are friendly. It certainly has it's flaws (it can definitely give off a preppy private school vibe) but I feel that the awesome academics and opportunities outweigh those annoyances. I love UR! ...Continue reading

    The University of Richmond has something to offer everyone no matter what you're into. Highlights are the amazing gym, the beautiful campus/buildings, and the incredibly friendly people! It's amazing how many people smile at strangers here. Food is good, teachers are great, opportunities are there if you actively search! Socially it's pretty wild, but find your niche and you're set! ...Continue reading

    I'm absolutely in love with this school, and glad I made this choice. There is a big work hard, play hard mentality, so it is hard to find alternative alcohol free events on the weekend. Professors really care about you and even your intro classes are going to be small! overall great atmosphere and great people! ...Continue reading

    The University of Richmond is an exceptional institution with a gorgeous campus. Honestly, there are times in which I feel like this place is my home. People are friendly, for the most part, and your hallmates become family. The academics are challenging but rewarding, and most teachers demonstrate a remarkable level of expertise in their field. However, you trade that for instructors that may know the material but either do not know the first thing about teaching or simply do not prepare. Campus parking is a nightmare if you are a commuter student. ...Continue reading

    I love it here, couldn't imagine being anywhere else. I am a minority but no one has ever done something to make me feel that way. The people I've met so far are very friendly, and they are all intelligent. It is nice to be in an environment where you are given the opportunity to challenge yourself while growing. The financial aid packets are to die for. ...Continue reading

    Small school which means that sports are also small, if you want to watch football with an enthusiastic crowd and be really involved in watching sports then sorry.

    Great place. However, it quickly became a horrible experience. The two reasons I came to this school, moot court and experiential clinics, were horribly run. Both are treated by the administration the same as the students treat them: something to put on the resume, not to take pride in and improve on. ...Continue reading

    Poor social life unless you're looking to drink and party, No cultural diversity, library is noisy & crowded, campus isolated from real world, rediculous homework load, disgusting student housing, pretty campus & great financial aid program, but other than those 2 things the school has nothing that a cheaper school can't give you for less stress.
