WELL 100

WELL 100 (Introduction to College Life at the University of Richmond) will be a NEW model for the Fall 2021 semester. WELL 100 enhances the first-year experience and gives all students a stronger start to their Richmond education. All incoming students will take WELL 100, which also includes the alcohol education seminar that builds upon AlcoholEdu for College that is required prior to arriving on campus. WELL 100 is a 14-session course (meeting once per week for 75 minutes) on various health and well-being topics, as well as topics such as diversity, equity, and inclusion, sustainability, the value of the liberal arts, involvement and career exploration. The class sessions will be interactive and discussion-based, with recorded lectures/content/homework done in advance.

WELL 100 draws from the University of Richmond strategic plan, and focuses on three key outcomes for the first-year experience:

  • Adjustment = Getting to know the University and what it takes to thrive at the University of Richmond.
  • Community = Establishing friend and affinity groups, expanding reach to campus and city, finding oneself and becoming a part of the University and the broader Richmond community.
  • Transformation = Becoming a thoughtful, engaged, and successful college student.
