Study Spot Hunting

A guide to finding the best study spots on campus.

I'm a freshman born and raised in Nicaragua. I plan to major in Economics, but I am also open to any possible changes and new paths that my college experience might take me. I am absolutely excited and proud to represent the Latino community at the University of Richmond.

Why UR?

I chose UR because it makes me feel at home. When I visited campus in April, I was surprised to be surrounded by a supportive and welcoming body of students, faculty and staff who really cared about me. They provided me with a sense of belonging and showed me that if I chose UR, I'd gain a new family too.
