Richmond Home


Every weekend the Cultural Advisors sponsor a variety of fun, late night events on Saturdays. Activities range from carnival nights to coffeehouse open mic nights, game nights, campus-wide scavenger hunts, dodgeball tournaments and trivia nights. We also try to get off-campus once or twice a semester for laser tag, trampoline parks, and other area Richmond attractions. Events on campus are always free, open to all students, include free food, and sometimes prizes. The average attendance at a SpiderNight is over 80 people and can be as high as 200+.
