University of Richmond Reviews
Facilities/Campus - 5/5. Buildings are very clean and almost never busy. Everything is brick and looks extremely put together, I also love the lake, gazebo, and amphitheater.
Diversity - 2.5/5. Although there are a decent amount of non-white students, campus remains very segregated racially. If you are involved in Greek life, you will rarely see non-white students. If you are not, you will rarely see white students.
Other things: School spirit lacking, food overrated (you get tired after a while, not many vegan/vegetarian options), very safe (ignore the safety rating; can leave your things in a random building for hours), dorms are pretty big, campus tucked away so not much within walking distance, VERY cliquey (like high school because small)
