University of Richmond Reviews
Best choice I ever made was going to Richmond. Definitely a work hard, play hard atmosphere, which makes for a student body that is beyond friendly and happy. I did not know a single person going in and had no problems quickly making great friends and adjusting to the school. All the professors have been great and very helpful and the classes are fast moving, but very interesting. The social scene is super fun and parties are not very exclusive. Overall a great setting for happy, hard-working students!
Housing is pretty bad until junior year. Party scene gets old SO fast. Most all of my professors are awesome! Greek life is extremely dominant, but as a girl I am more than happy not being in a sorority. Be warned, if you have a car on campus, parking services will be the worst thing in the world--they really are awful! Overall, I am happy I chose to go to school here!
So I agree UR is one of the greater best-value universities when factoring in academics and professors. In terms of Diversity, UR is certainly not an "A" school. The overwhelming majority of UR students are caucasian white Americans who come from the New England region, likely either Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, or Maryland, mostly students who attended private schools (but likely didn't perform at the highest of their class or didn't get into top schools). With that, there is of course an implication that many of them have wealthy backgrounds, and with that a somewhat egotistic attitude (Of course not all of them though). The small population of international or non-white students are usually either straight out of China or athletes (which I should mention the football team is not so good). Other than that UR is a great, cozy place to attend.
