Hello! My name is Sky Harsch and I am a second year International Relations major. I am originally from Michigan, but I moved to Richmond two years ago in the hopes of getting a more diverse political education than I could have in the states. Studying here at Richmond has definitely given me that international environment I was looking for and has been truly and amazing experience!
International Relations classes here are so enriching and engaging, not only because I love what I’m studying but also because of the structure in which classes are taught. The students and teachers here are so diverse in background that when discussing international topics, you’re able to learn first-hand about different countries, their governments, and how they live. The classes are interactive and never overwhelming in size, and I am amazed how much I have enjoyed learning and growing in these past two years.
The diversity within Richmond also helps to create and very unique peer environment. The close-knit students here push each other at all times to be more kind, courageous, caring, accepting, and curious, all while striving for academic excellence. It’s the perfect school for a student who wants to learn and live globally and have a lot of fun along the way.
