University of Richmond will welcome prospective students and their families to campus during the last week of July for Virginia Private College Week.

Virginia Private College Week is an annual event sponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia. Students who visit at least three of the more than 20 participating institutions during the week will receive fee waivers to apply to any three participating CICV colleges for free, regardless of whether they visited that campus or not.

Participating colleges hold daily programs on admissions, financial aid, academics and campus life for rising juniors, seniors and prospective transfer students. At University of Richmond, these programs will be Monday, July 25, through Friday, July 29, at 9:45 a.m. and 2:15 p.m., followed by student-guided campus tours. Online registration is recommended. Check in will take place at Modlin Center for the Arts, Camp Concert Hall.

“Private College Week is great opportunity for students to visit multiple campuses and ask lots of questions,” said Nate Crozier, University of Richmond director of admission. “Visiting campuses in person early on in the search process is important in gauging whether the size of the campus, its location and what’s offered are the right fit for you.”
