His remarks provided a brief history of how critical an educated electorate is to democratic societies and affirmed America’s commitment to education. ️🇮🇹

Earlier this month, our #Spider alumni returned to Richmond for reunion weekend — some from as far as Australia, Denmark, and Peru — filling the dorms and campus with life while our students are away for the summer. To all the Spider alumni out there, we hope to see you very soon! Here are some of our favorite shots from the weekend. #SpiderPride #TBT

Tim Finchem discovered his love of golf at an early age. Back then, no one knew that the son of a Marine gunnery sergeant and member of Richmond College's class of 1969 would go on to be the @pgatour Commissioner for more than 20 years. During his tenure, the Tour saw unprecedented television contracts, massive increases in prize money, a broadening roster of stars, and the establishment of signature new initiatives. It rode the emergence of Tiger Woods, survived the Great Recession, and became a charitable powerhouse. After retiring last December, he left behind a transformed organization that soared to new heights with his guidance. #SpidersWeLove #SpiderPride
