Prospective Student Open Houses

Preview Richmond

Preview Richmond events are day-long open houses for prospective students and their families. The Office of Admission typically offers a Summer Preview for high school seniors and juniors; a Fall Preview for high school seniors, juniors, and sophomores; and a Spring Preview for high school juniors and sophomores.

Designed to provide a thorough look at what makes the Richmond experience truly unique, Previews typically include a welcome from University administrators; sessions on admission and affordability; campus tours; lunch on campus; and panel discussions with current students, faculty, deans, staff, and admission officers on topics ranging from academics to student life.

Registration is now open for our next Preview Richmond open house on Friday, October 14! Please join our contact list to receive updates about this event.
