Report of Richmond College
Report of Richmond College
This is the Annual Report for Richmond College for the 1968-1969 school year, the first year the University enrolled black residential students. They had 1,344 students enrolled, which was a slight decline from the year before where they had 1,363 students. The Admissions Office accounted for this decline by pointing to the "smaller pool of prospective entering students," the lack of suitable housing because of temporary barracks, and the lack of financial aid. The housing issue was supposed to be remedied the following year with the construction of Moore Hall. There would also be increased financial aid to offer the next year. By the end of the year, they only had 1,287 still enrolled because of student dropouts, graduation, or transferring to the School of Business. 54 percent of students came from Virginia, outside of Richmond. The overwhelming majority of students majored in History and Political Science. The average GPA was a 2.292 on a 4.0 scale. Richmond College saw a 25 percent decline in fraternity membership. "Whether this was a transitory local condition or a symptom of a deeper problem cannot be evaluated at this time." The number of interviews seniors received had increased, and the average salary for those placed with jobs was 700 dollars a month.
