Spider Chats

Seniors/rising seniors
July to January

A Spider Chat is a one-on-one opportunity to virtually connect with a current Richmond student, share your interests, explore Richmond as a match for you, and learn more about the University from someone who knows it well. Spider Chats typically last 15-20 minutes, and are available to current and rising high school seniors by appointment from July to January. Slots are limited, so you are encouraged to sign up early.

To schedule a Spider Chat, view our searchable calendar for upcoming availability. You must register for a Spider Chat at least three business days in advance.

If you would like to connect with a local Alumni, a similar opportunity may be available in your area via our Alumni Spider Chats.
