What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is not a school that I’m personally impressed with. Parking is terrible. There are a lot of opportunities in terms of things to do however being in the city you don’t always feel safe. Athletics are huge but the fans (including students) are more obnoxious than any other fan base I’ve met- TERRIBLE if you’re rooting for the opposition. The student body is so large that you feel like a number instead of a valued member. That said a lot of students have had great experiences here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love VCU for its diversity, location, vibe. There isn't anything more I would want in a school. Everyone seems to find their place within the school and its so interesting to see the diversity of people, cultures, beliefs, etc. So far, I haven't had any issues with my academics, all of my professors have been fairly well and there is always a resource of some sort of anything you need.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school and the amazing opportunities it has offered me. I love how diverse VCU is, and the campus is exciting because its located in the city. If anyone wants a taste of the "city life" this is a perfect school for you, because its big enough to get the city experience, but its not overwhelming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love VCU! I was nervous about going to such a large city school at first, but immediately felt at home. It's so easy to find groups of people you get along with and it's so diverse. The entire campus is right in the city of Richmond which allows you access to so much. I definitely recommend!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a very diverse campus both people and culture. There are many different clubs, rec sports and other campus events for any student to get involved with. There is always someone to turn whether it's another student, professor or adviser. It is a great school for anyone and for anything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great University that I'd recommend for everyone. All the facilities on campus (Classes, Gym, Clinic, etc.) are all accessible and within walking distance. There are also many ways to de-stress , the gym pool, Belle Isle to the south of campus, and the numerous activities in the city. You'll make lots of good friends and like minded people all while getting a fantastic education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion, VCU is amazing. Before I applied to college, I paid very close attention to the diversities of each school I was applying to and VCU is nothing less than diverse & inclusive. There are so many clubs to join, sports to engage in, activities to do. For people like me who never knew if they’d really find a place in the world, there are so many others here that can you relate. You find people who get you whether you have the same major or interests. It’s an all around great college to pursue your studies and develop who you are or want to be in the process.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A wonderful, thriving, vibrant community full of wonderful people doing wonderful things. It's as simple as that. Located in the very heart of the capital city of Virginia, it serves as a headquarters for green movements, political activists, artists, musicians, doctors, you name it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is always something happening on campus and so many things to do around the school like restaurants and shops. Since the school is in the city, you do have to be very cautious around you, especially at night. The students are pretty nice and willing to listen even if there may be different opinions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of VCU is that it’s a very good school, I love the campus, I love seeing different faces everyday and I love how involved the students are within the community. Although some people may not like VCU, your experience is all of what you make it out to be. VCU is in the middle of the city of Richmond so many people don’t like the city setting.
