Richmond's weather has a mind of its own
Hey guys! My name is Shiv, and I'm currently a freshman at the University of Richmond (UR is the popular moniker among students on campus). I intend on majoring in Math and possibly Computer Science as well.
Why UR?I wanted to attend a university that would cater to my thirst for knowledge, one that would transform my train of thought, one where each class that I’d attend would leave me in awe, making me feel smarter because of my newly acquired knowledge and stupider for having realized that there was SO much about the world that I did not know about yet. Liberal arts schools were definitely the way to go in this regard. I had heard about the small class sizes, immense research opportunities, not to mention the beauty of their college campuses. Having charted out a mental checklist of all the things that I sought in an academic institution, a name that kept recurring in my search was the ‘University of Richmond’. I’ll be honest with you; I didn’t know a lot about the university before this, but further research left me sure that this university was where I wanted to spend the next four years of my life.
