Tucked behind the blue counter of the Campus Activities Desk, located at the valve of our campus' aortic Commons, Charlie is unintentionally the C of many A and B conversations.

The University of Richmond has landed on the Princeton Review's 2009 list of schools with homogeneous populations and little race or class interaction, but made the cut for most beautiful campus and best classroom experience, leading university officials to question the study's survey methodology.
