Preview Richmond

Preview Richmond events are day-long open houses for prospective students and their families. The Office of Admission typically offers a Summer Preview for high school seniors and juniors; a Fall Preview for high school seniors, juniors, and sophomores; and a Spring Preview for high school juniors and sophomores.

Designed to provide a thorough look at what makes the Richmond experience truly unique, Previews typically include a welcome from University administrators; sessions on admission and affordability; campus tours; lunch on campus; and panel discussions with current students, faculty, deans, staff, and admission officers on topics ranging from academics to student life.

The next Preview Richmond events will take place on September 13, 2021 (virtual) and October 15, 2021 (on-campus). Registration will open on this page six weeks prior to the event date.
