Testimonials

Small size classes allows me to participate and ask questions in classes. I find one to one interaction with professors an essential part of effective learning, and Richmond provides this to all students.
Some classes can be challenging, but I learn the most from these classes and actually enjoy them. I have to admit I like being challenged, and Richmond sure does challenge me in many ways!
