Enrolling at Richmond
Congratulations! We’re so thrilled that you have chosen to join the Richmond community, and our community of first-generation students as well.
The New Spiders website will be your best friend as you prepare to arrive in August. Be sure to explore it fully; in particular, we encourage you to consider the Pre-Semester Programs and Academic Year Programs available to students. Programs like Roadmap to Success, Multicultural Pre-Orientation, and Peer Advisors and Mentors are designed specifically to help students transition to college, and can help you find your footing more quickly.
You might also consider applying for a living-learning community for your first year. A living-learning community gives you the opportunity to create meaningful bonds and friendships with your fellow classmates, develop a relationship with an additional faculty member during your first year, and connect your interests both inside and outside of the classroom.
