University of Richmond Reviews
Review University of Richmond
The University of Richmond is a great school. It has solid aspects of all major realms of college life. We have great academic departments, staffed by some really great professors. Our sports teams are well known around the country, especially our basketball teams. We have a multitude of service organizations and opportunities, allowing students to really get involved in developing the community outside the campus. Finally, the students here are very friendly and welcoming, which contributes to a great social facet of campus. I just wish for a bit more diversity in the types of organization son campus. It seems that most organizations are focused on some sort of service, are a social/professional fraternity, or are sports related. I would like to see people expressing their interests Joe and reaching out to people who might share them.
The police are fine, but the students often get so drunk that they damage property and make fools of themselves. I am fine with lax enforcement of alcohol policies, but they are so unenforced that people get really drunk and run around the dorms breaking things, often with little punishment! It is known that sexual assaults/harassment are not taken all that seriously.
Best decision I've made so far! I've always wanted a work hard-play hard school with top notch academics, a diverse student body, and a welcoming community(great financial aid also). So far I have gotten just that. I'm an international student and the move has been so easy. I can't wait to see what the next 4 years have in store for me :)
