Attending the University of Richmond guarantees you one thing - a great education. Beyond that, student’s experiences here differ greatly. The people are mostly likeable, but very rich, conservative, white and conformist. If these are not your kind of people you should consider looking elsewhere. I do like my classes, but it is sometimes hard to register for the classes you want. Also, Richmond’s pre-med program isn’t the best but they are currently taking steps to remedy this. I would say that, as a general rule of thumb, if you visit and get good vibes you will love it here. Because of the homogeneity of the student body, however, if you don’t fit in, you will have a very hard time.

The social scene at Richmond, which revolves around the frats, is decent. If you like variety in what you do on the weekends this might not be the place for you. But if you enjoy a good game of beer pong and lodge parties you will probably have a good time.

Think hard before you decide to come to U of R. There’s a chance you could have the time of your life here and get a great education to boot. But if you do come, be prepared to work hard. Also be aware that Richmond isn’t for everyone. If you are liberal, or consider yourself more of an individualistic, free-thinker type you will probably find this place suffocating.
