          • Testimony
            1998-2002, BA, Economics

            The greatest benefit I gained from Richmond beyond the excellent academic environment was the enormous support of staff and administrators. No matter what ridiculous idea, notion, plan, or scheme other students and I could devise, there was always calm and patient support from the institution. This made any cocurricular or extracurricular endeavors more meaningful and helped foster a sense of real institutional pride (desire for advancement). Facilities and grounds are certainly top-notch and constantly renovated and expanded, but ultimately it comes down to what happens within the walls and by the people. Those exceptional people, their attitudes towards student development, and their perspectives on the function of a liberal arts education (said by a business student) shaped my experience and direct my future.
