Undergraduate Admission

Visit the place you’ll love to call home

Your campus visit is so much more than seeing the beauty of our campus firsthand. It’s more than meeting our Spider community and joining us in classes. It’s more than walking our 350 acres of brickwork, gardens, and walkways. And it’s more than eating our award-winning food... though that’s definitely a nice perk.

Your campus visit is about envisioning your life as a Spider and seeing the place where you’ll learn, grow, flourish, and call home for years to come. Schedule your visit to Richmond today. We’re so excited to meet you.

A Guide to Creating a Successful Application
During the conversation of college admission, often the question arises, “What can I do to stand out?”. Typically, the underlying assumption is, “What can I do to standout…in a good way”. While there are many aspects of an application that are desirable, compelling, and interesting to read, there are equally as many blunders students can make when crafting their application.
