What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly hate it here because the professors are more focused on their research than the learning of their student. This place was an absolute waste of money. My criminal justice professor showed up for class less than 10 times last semester and had the TA teach. The TA was definitely not qualified to teach class and if I wanted to be taught by another VCU student I would've just gone to the library.

I honestly love Virginia Commonwealth University and am so happy with my choice. I love the diversity and the feeling of belonging here. The environment is very excepting and welcoming of different types of people and is a judge free zone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! I feel like this is an ideal school because of the art culture. I love that the houses have in unit kitchens and laundry. I love that is so in the middle of the city. Not too far from home and not too close. DC is right down the street and the belle river is right beside the school for fun sports like kayaking, white water rafting, and rock climbing. I just over all love the school and can't wait to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

VCU is a university with a hugely diverse population. The streets around campus are horrible, and the noise pollution is just as annoying. The students aren't concerned with anyone but themselves. Food choices are scarce. Concerts are phenomenal. Fantastic views from all levels in the on- and off-campus housing. Dogs are walked everywhere. Everyone is welcome, but no one is special.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Commonwealth University is a great academic institution. It is in a very diverse and urban setting which provides so many opportunities for everyone. Professors are great and super supportive. There is a student organization for everyone here. I feel at home away from home. I feel comfortable reaching to professors and other faculty for support. I am glad I chose to come to VCU for college. It was the best choice I have made.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In the fall semester of 2018 I entered Virginia commonwealth university as freshman out of state student. As student who wasn’t originally from Virginia the school made new student orientation very welcoming to new students. Especially with programs provided like Ram Camp. This program was designed to help students acclimate to the school a week early before school started. As well as allow them to meet other students potentially graduating in their class so that they’d start school being familiar with their fellow peers. VCU also hosted weekly events such as the SOVO fair where students could hear about clubs and organizations that are ideal to their personalities and interest. Or even free food in the common areas during the day where students could get a taste of food from local Richmond restaurants. Richmond all together is a very inclusive community. The population at Virginia commonwealth university is very well diverse in their culture. Especially with school wide celebrations for hispanic culture. Or even activities held for holidays such as Martin Luther KingJr. day. As they allow their organizations to hold a candle light vigil and ceremony on campus open to the public. Overall if you’re looking for a school with a healthy environment for all of its student, I recommend that VCU be the school for you!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great place to meet new people and explore the outdoors. There are numerous events on and off campus, for academical and fun purposes. Therefore, VCU has many resources to ensure that students get the education they need while also exploring and finding great people and places.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The last 3 years at VCU have had a lot of ups and downs but I will say my ups definitely outweighed my downs. Overall the university will give you an amazing experience if you let it. There are some experiences that you can’t get at any other school including exploring the campus and surrounding areas with your friends, amazing on campus events, and of course all of the different people you will meet on campus throughout your time here. Some downsides to the campus include things like financial aid, both the staff and the process of it, and on campus housing, but I would not trade my experiences or time here for anything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I think about VCU, the first thing that used to come to my mind was, "An art school in the city." However, after being there for a year and some change now when I think of VCU I think of the word, "Family". When I first got to VCU I was super scared, however, meeting those who were incoming and those who were here already, I discovered that everybody here is here to help and will help you. From finding where something is to finding out what you missed in class, students and professors will be there to help. When I started to branch out and join organizations I found my family, which made VCU a home for me and even though it is a little pricey, which is the reason why I have to take a semester off, there is no other place I would want to transfer to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school, the original reason that I chose VCU was because it seemed so diverse, and although it is a predominately white institution (PWI) there are many different races and groups that embrace their ethnicities. Campus food may not be that great, but in the city of Richmond, there are many great restaurants to visit and there is never a dull moment at VCU.
