Thriving At Richmond

Welcome to UR! We have confidence you can do really well at Richmond, and we also realize that adjusting to college can be a challenge. 

Get to know your faculty

The classes at Richmond are small and faculty hold office hours for a reason. Faculty members are known to be very supportive and interested in getting to know their students, and once you get to know them it will be easier to communicate with them.

Join a club

The best way to meet people outside your classes is by joining a club. Choose organizations that will offer regular chances to expand your friend networks and fill some of your free time.

Get comfortable asking for help

You likely aren’t the only one with a question. From your RA, to your Academic Advisor, to the advisors in Financial Aid, there are people all around you with information to help you get settled.
