English classes [Feb. 9th, 2008|09:12 pm]
Richmond University in London

[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

Hey guys. My name's Lee and I'm currently a junior in high school here in the states. I'm considering applying to Richmond and I'm curious as to your experiences with the English department. My preferred major would be creative writing, but as far as I know that isn't available. Basically I just want to know if you guys think the teachers tend to know what they're talking about and there would be enough options for a kid who wants to concentrate on writing more than anything else. Also, are classes generally interesting?

Oh, and as most everyone else seems to say around here, previous comments are a little disappointing. Is Richmond really a place I want to be? I'm not super studious (I tend to forgo homework for writing or watching television) and I'm a little socially retarded. But I'm absolutely in love with London and I generally enjoy learning (just not homework :P). I'm pretty much worried about how some universities are like, 'if you don't party all the time, you won't fit in!'

So... yeah. Thanks in advance. :)

Hey. =) [Dec. 9th, 2007|08:01 pm]
Richmond University in London

I'm currently a Massachusetts highschool student, but I'm hoping to be able to attend Richmond after I graduate. =) I just have a couple questions:

What are the chances of being accepted? I kind of messed up my freshman year, but I'm an A-/B+ student with a C+ in math. x.x I don't play any school sports and I'm not in any school clubs but I do take horseback riding lessons and I'll be volunteering at a Therapeutic Riding Stable and an animal adoption center in the spring.. I'm hoping to study psychology. =)

Can I pay tuition, room and board, etc in US currency? One of my biggest fears is not having enough money. o.o My family isn't exactly rich and I don't have a job right now.

If I get in, it'll be my first time traveling alone, and my first time overseas. o.o I've been on a plane before, so I'm not worried about that part...I'm just worried I'll get off the plane, and have no idea how to actually get to the campus with all my luggage, because I don't know anyone who'd be able to pick me up and drive me there. So, if you're currently a student at Richmond, how did you get to the campus(bus, taxi, etc.)?

Thats all for now...I'll probably have some more questions so you'll probably see me posting around in the future. =)

Has anyone heard of/gone to Shepherds Bush Empire? It's a concert stadium in London somewhere, but I can't figure out how close it is to Richmond, and I want to know if its easy to get to using public transportation. Thanks!

Info on Main Building Dorms & Packing [May. 27th, 2007|04:54 pm]
Richmond University in London
I'm sure you're going to get tons of ridiculous questions from me in the weeks to come. You'll likely want to pummel my brains out. Apologies for that.

I'll be in a double on the first floor of the main building this coming fall. About what size are the rooms, and how are the bathrooms? I'd also like to know what sort of linens the school provides -- flat sheets only, or the whole deal with pillows/pillowcases and a comforter? In sort of the same vein, what's easiest to bring over, and what should I just buy once I'm there?

I'm considering bringing some of my DVDs over too; half of me says I won't have time to watch them, but the other half of me says I won't do much else. Thoughts?

And lastly, I suppose, what's the one thing you're truly glad you brought with you to campus?

Thank you!

I just got my "choose a first year seminar course" pamphlet in the mail, and I wanted to know if anyone could tell me if any of them (or the teachers) sucked? Especially if any of the following suck:

"Utopia and Dystopia" taught by Dr. M. Keating,
"Myth, Magic and Science" taught by Dr. P. Bolton
"Heroes and Environmentalism" taught by Dr. W. Clark
"The Philosophy of Ethics" taught by Mr. J. Earl

Or if any of them are so spectatucarly good that I can't pass it by? Because really, all of those are up my alley, but especially Utopia/Dystopia and the Ethics courses are the type of classes I'd revel in. Thanks for any feedback!

This time last year, we were bombarding this place with questions and introductions so...

What happened to all the freshers/transfers?

Three posts ago, in the comments section, someone said that Richmond isn't the greatest place to get a degree. I hoping that someone can prove that wrong!

I'd really like to go to Richmond not only for the location but for the experience. Yes, academics have dominated my life thus far, and I'd like to keep challenging myself if possible, but I love Europe, and London in particular. It's always been a dream of mine to live there, and Richmond seems like my only viable option right now.

Thoughts, comments, whatever. Even if you tell me not to go, or that I suck at life, or that I should get a life, I would really value some opinions. Thank you!
