I absolutely love the University of Richmond! I couldn't imagine attending any other university!
The campus looks great, too bad that people don't care about things larger than themselves. Too bad people are not generous, very nice, or involved in things like art, politics, or the community.
Too bad most majors are not that great, and our reputation is based on the BSchool. Aside from academics, there really are not as many opportunities here compared to what you can get elsewhere. You wont really be able to take part in extracurricular or grow as a person outside of the classroom.
The facilities, food, and resources are great. The only problems are that the students are very close-minded to change or differences and that people don't tend to leave campus much and explore all of the awesome things that the city of Richmond has to offer.

I am very impressed with the academics at UR. Classes are challenging, and students spend a lot of time in the library (it's open 24/7). The teachers really make an effort to get to know you, and they are more than willing to meet outside of class. My favorite classes have been my First Year Seminars (FYS). Every first year student is required to take one FYS each semester. In the fall I took "Education and Citizenship" which examined the history of the public school system in America and looked at the inequalities in education both here in Richmond and across the country. This semester I'm taking "America in the World, the World in America" which looks at how the U.S. is portrayed through film and literature. These classes are capped at 16 students, and they're the largest classes I've taken here so far. Participation is common across all classes, and because they are so small it's very difficult to hide in the back row.
Driven and hard working students. The business school is very competitive and people are friendly only if you approach them.
I met most of my closest friends through our fantastic Orientation program. During New Student Orientation, students are paired off into groups based on their halls and paired with a hall of the opposite gender. That's where I met my first friends!
Some steriotypes about Richmond are that it is an incredibly homogeneous student body, the students lack the ability to think analytically and creatively, and that it is a school for the very wealthy.
Yes. Painstakingly so.
A student planning to attend college should ponder two questions: how will the school/programs help me reach my ultimate goal, AND open the most doors possible. Nearly every college student changes their major at least once and an undergraduate major does not dictate the rest of one's life as the average American changes careers several times over the course of their working life. It's foolish to go to school as a freshman and have a very clear cut game plan because college is a time of exploration and education. One should also consider what they enjoy studying as there is no sense being an accounting major if you hate numbers, and then analyze school rankings by major. Look at the top schools in your field, determine what is realistic within your GPA/SAT means, and then use other criteria such as size and location to make a decision.
One final piece of advice NEVER allow finances to decide where to apply to. Receiving financial aid is much like buying a used car. Aid money is ENTIRELY negotiable, and personally I go to the second most expensive school in the country, and it's cheaper than state school.
The school is just the right size and offers a ton of opportunities. Great reputation!
Students come from all different backgrounds and from all over the world. I would not say that there is one stereotype that fits are campus and that is what is so unique about it. You will find jocks, frats, nerds, and just your average joes.
Business and campus beauty
I would have to say the best thing about the school is the life long friendships you begin here.
Price of meal plans
College was the best four years of my life.
That Dennis Hall was better than Gray Court.
Goal oriented, outgoing people
Must have nerves of steel and thick skin. The school offers no easy A.
People of color, because there are very few of them. Anyone who doesn't like cliques, or who would prefer to hang out with adults. Anyone who likes having a varied social life or intellectual conversations need not apply.
The rigor of work and no dead week to complete assignments at the end of the semester.
This school had all of the programs that I wanted, the location was perfect, the financial aid was fantastic, and when I visited I fell in love with the beautiful campus.
Beautiful campus, beautiful girls and we have a squad of geese that protect us
