5 College Sophomore

Academics: They're hard, but it's worth it.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The student health center is filled with idiots but there's a lot of really great resources on campus besides them

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: You're either in or you're out.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: If you can afford it, live in the horsepen apartments junior or senior year. On campus housing has been filling up a lot and horsepen is beautiful and a 5 minute drive to campus. Tuckahoe apartments are also nice but they're a little sketchier. Or get an off campus house.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Richmond has the most amazing food.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration sucks when it comes to organizing events (see Ring Dance) and gauging the desires of the student body. They make a lot of really poor decisions that anger the general student body.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There's always a lot going on but it gets kind of repetitive week after week.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Richmond matches 100% of need based financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining hall is very high quality but gets old pretty quickly. The on campus dining like Lous and Passport are amazing but expensive and if you go around prime meal times there's usually a relatively long wait.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus, but from what I've heard there is a good amount of off campus housing that many students take advantage of and love.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love all the restaurants I have personally visited in Richmond. Personally I recommend Mekong, a popular local Vietnamese restaurant and micro-brewery.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is a healthy blend of concern for your well-being and understanding that this is a college campus and there will be partying. Also, the campus is very understanding about the reality of sexual relationships and visitors to your room are allowed.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school is very helpful at determining how much your family can afford to pay for college and they are willing to cover 100% of demonstrated financial need.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The lodges are great fun and the fraternities are very welcoming to all types of students.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The non-dining hall options at UR are awesome. They each have a unique and delicious selection. However, D-hall gets boring and repetitive quite fast. The desert bar and specials are great, but sometimes the food sits out for a long period of time and gets really dry.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is great on a basic level. However, it is a college dorm so there is often quite a mess. Yet, the cleaning staff does a great job taking care of it in a timely fashion.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are so many course options and major options. You can study anything that interests you at this school. All of the professors are extremely dedicated and always helpful. Class sizes are always kept small.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Students have a wide variety of career aspirations and a degree from this school carries a lot of weight. The office of Career Services really helps students with their career goals. Most students complete at least 2 internships throughout their undergraduate years. The alumni network is large and very connected to the school. Employers are constantly on campus recruiting.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students really seem to enjoy UR and its retention rate, 92 percent, seems to reflect that. Those people who just don't feel like they fit in transfer out after freshman year, so by the time senior year comes around, everyone in your class likes the school and knows one another, for the most part. There is also an influx of students who transfer into the school at the beginning of sophomore year. The best part about UR is the intimate atmosphere that it has, being a somewhat small, private university. It is a comfortable atmosphere that allows them to study in peace and relax when they need to. You get to know a lot of people and develop close friendships with many of them. The campus is gorgeous and so are the people.

Students at UR rarely have much to complain about and few could see themselves at any other school. They realize how lucky they are to be here and try to make the most of their opportunity by taking advantage of the great education, strong alumni network, and career preparation activities that the school provides. There are students who don't particularly like the school when they first arrive, but by the end of their time at UR, they don't regret their original choice to attend.
