Reasons to attend and to not attend University of Richmond

To Attend

  • “The small class sizes. It really gives you the chance to know your professors well, and they are approachable outside of class.” [The student-faculty ratio is 8:1.]
  • “They do a really good job of placing people in jobs after college. All my friends are employed in not even 6 months after graduation.” [Richmond has a 97% six-month employment rate.]
  • “If you’re interested in Greek life.”
  • “It’s not too difficult to be a big fish in the small pond, that is the student size here. If you involve yourself in an organization your freshman year that you know you’ll be passionate about, you can be president of that organization by the time you’re a junior or senior. The amount of resources available to you as the president of an organization means you can really put your own initiatives into place.” [The undergraduate population about 3,000.]

To Not Attend

  • “If you’re looking for a college town, it’s super difficult to leave the campus. We have a shuttle and bus system, but they’re unreliable at best.”
  • “If you’re uncomfortable with the lack of diversity of the student population.”[9% of undergraduates are international students, and 29% are students of color.]
  • “It’s a small campus so it can feel like a high school at times. If you end up [romantically involved] with someone, there’s a 70% chance you’re going to see them tomorrow, or they are going to be friends with one of your friends.”
  • “If you don’t like Greek life.”
