Black Students Day Will Bring 80 To UR
The Collegian

Description

This Collegian article discussed "Black Students Visitation Day," a program which would bring an estimated 80 black Richmond high schools students to campus. The program was formed by the Richmond College and Westhampton College senates "in an effort to familiarize the black community with the University of Richmond." The goal of Black Students Day was to help create a more diverse student body at the University of Richmond. Students believed that the event would appeal to more black students because it was created by student organizations. The visitation day enabled black students to attend classes and meet the RC and WC deans. The day ended with a panel discussion in the Dennis auditorium with information about available financial aid and counseling.
