University of Richmond is my dream come true!! Everything about this place is magical. The classes are small and intimate, and the professors are there to help you, not hurt you. Even in the highly competitive biology program, students work together. They don't want to see their classmates fall through the cracks. Office hours are incredibly helpful if you don't understand a concept, or just need a quick review. My organic chemistry professor sat with me patiently for over a half hour explaining a concept to me until I understood it 100%.

The weather is beautiful, and we easily have the most gorgeous campus in the entire US (ok, so I'm a little biased, but it's still fantastic). The campus is always clean and well-maintained, and I'm proud to call this campus my home. The food is way above average. It's very tasty, and the only complaint I've ever heard is about a lack in variety.

But essentially, it's the people that make this college so amazing. I'm from the Northeast, and my best friends are from Virginia, Peru, and Honk Kong. Every single person that I've met on this campus (and I've met A LOT of people) has been nothing but warm and welcoming. The sense of community that UR fosters is unbelievable. Every time break comes around, I can't wait for it to end so I can go back home to UR.

Going to University of Richmond was the best decision I've ever made! I'm graduating next year, and I will head to medical school to become a specialized surgeon, and I am 100% prepared. Academically, socially, and emotionally UR has been a wonderful experience. The only problem is the price tag. It's very expensive, but I cannot stress this enough - THE EXPERIENCE IS WORTH THE HIGH PRICE TAG!!!! PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS!! Don't let some stupid price tag keep you from having an amazing experience. Even though I will graduate over $40,000 in debt, I know that this school has given me a solid foundation to build my life upon, and I would not change anything about it!
