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

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 23 through Friday, July 27 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 the Queally Center for Admission and Career Services.

“Private College Week is a great opportunity for students to visit multiple campuses and ask lots of questions,” said Marilyn Hesser, University of Richmond’s director of admission. “Visiting students will get a glimpse of what it is like to live and eat on UR’s campus, visiting the dining hall and a dorm room. They will also hear from students about their varied experiences and leave with a thorough understanding of what it means to be a Spider.”

Advice on the best questions to ask on a campus tour during Virginia Private College Week or anytime is available at news.richmond.edu/campustours.

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 24 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. In addition, students visiting at least three institutions will also be eligible for a drawing for a $500 Amazon gift card.
