Office of Admission Events

There is always something going on at the University of Richmond: on-campus recruitment events, admitted student open houses, and off-campus recruitment activities. Alumni who attend these events are asked to mingle with guests, join us during on campus events for lunch at the dining hall, assist with registration, and share their personal stories and experiences from Richmond.

We are always delighted to include alumni volunteers in admission events.
