The Richmond Endeavor

The Richmond Endeavor is the University of Richmond's premiere living-learning experience for first-year students.The Richmond Endeavor is designed for students to create meaningful bonds and friendships with their fellow classmates, develop a relationship with a faculty member during their first year at Richmond, and connect their interests both inside and outside of the classroom.

Defining features of The Richmond Endeavor are:

  • Dedicated academic advising by a faculty mentor who will help you plan your classes each semester from the summer before you get to campus until you declare a major
  • Participate in the popular Roadmap to Success pre-orientation program, that will introduce campus, classes and the city of Richmond to you before the semester begins
  • Connect with and get advice from a dedicated peer-advisor, a current Richmond student who knows the in's and out's
  • Enroll in two-linked courses in the fall and spring semester, either a first-year seminar, a course that fulfills a general education requirement, or an introductory course to a major, led by the same faculty mentor who is also your academic advisor
  • Live together as a cohort in Lora Robins Court residence hall, one of the largest residence halls for first-year students 

The application deadline for The Richmond Endeavor is June 7, 2020.
