A key element of the Richmond experience was that students learn to respect, value and appreciate the diversity of others; something I feel cannot be taught in the classroom.

One of the many reasons I enjoyed my time at Richmond was because of the diversity of backgrounds and personalities of the students. Additionally, I recognized the benefits of small class sizes and the opportunities for creating strong ties with fellow students.
