Join us for a casual summer stroll around the beautiful campus at University of Richmond!

The University of Richmond’s 350-acre campus consists of beautiful gothic architecture set amid a landscape of pines, rolling hills, and Westhampton Lake.  The campus was recognized by The Princeton Review in 2000 as the most beautiful in the United States, and it has served as a filming location for several movies and television shows.

During this walk, we will explore the grounds of the campus including the lake.
