What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although I have not yet attended any classes at Virginia Commonwealth University, I look forward to my time there. There are many reasons that I even applied to the university in the first place. First, VCU offers programs that are focused on my area of study. Secondly, there is a very diverse student body that constantly encourages each other to put their best effort.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Commonwealth University is an extraordinary place to attend college. It is in the middle of the city where it will help you learn the ins and outs of the world. It’ll also help you become an independent human being that will be able to strive in the best way they are capable of.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion on VCU, it is a good school. Campus housing really depends on where you go as a freshman but there are plenty living learning communities that will allow freshman in some of the better dorms. Though good luck getting on campus housing if you are junior and up. Off campus housing, their are plenty but cost because VCU is located in central Richmond so they can raise prices. VCU has many local restaurants due to it being built around the city, giving students a city vibe without going to NYC. Campus food is iffy, a meal plan is recommended but don’t overspent because food isn’t that great and then the hours for swiping can be weird. The professors for gen eds can be iffy though there are some golden professors but as you get more involved in you core classes, the professors are either really amazing and passionate or they are simple at VCU for funding for their research. Lastly there are a lot of things to do at VCU, you simply have to find it. We have everything from language clubs to Greek life, we also have sports including Quidditch.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe VCU is a great school. It’s right in the middle of the city so it’s definitely a different vibe than most colleges, giving you more freedom to go out into the world in between studies. The only things I would fix about VCU are tuition costs (highest in the state) and the accessibility of our professors. Some of the professors just don’t care at all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Commonwealth University isn't a bad university in general, there's just some hiccups within the campus and regarding professors. The campus usually has trash laying about outside and inside and crimes happen throughout the week. The professors were professional and helpful but there are some who seem to not know what they are doing as much as others, like they're still students themselves. There are a lot of people you run into who aren't the best to be around.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm so excited to attend VCU in the fall. After just one college visit it turned into my top choice and it seemed like a great fit for me that I can't wait to partake in. The people there are all friends, the school is beautiful, and since it's in the city there's always a lot to do and I know i'll never get bored while I attempt VCU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I visited VCU, because when I was getting surgery my anesthesiologist graduated from VCU. After that I signed up for my visit and pretty much fell in love. The campus life, the style, the city life, it was just perfect for me. I was over the moon that I had found a school and fell in love. We visited UVA the next day and it wasn't the same, I kept thinking about VCU in the back of my mind.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is diverse but not inclusive. It is an extremely large school and the university treats its students as opportunities for money. I feel quite ignored and unhappy with services such as food, academics, tutoring, and factors such as those. The city location is alright but not the best.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Commonwealth University has been quite an experience for me. It's hard to believe that I have been here for three years already. The memories, the experience, it was all thanks to this school. The stressful nights at the Cabell library, the events held by various organizations, the new people you constantly meet, it's all at VCU. What I love the most about this school is the diversity, the new people I meet all have their own opinions and unique personalities. The memories I have met with my peers are ones, that I will not be forgetting for a long time. The professors, at least the ones I have had so far, are very passionate about what they teach. They are not necessarily the easiest professors, nor do they teach the easiest materials, but students can tell they have a strong interest in what they teach. The workload is not crazy at VCU, I would say it's probably moderate. As long as you do not slack off and actually put in the effort, it's all a normal school workload. Lastly, I want to talk about the environment. I stayed at Brandt Hall, and it was a decent living situation. As of the 2018-2019 school year, they added a new freshman dorm and it looks amazing from the outside (personally have never been inside). There seems to be plenty of dorms for freshmen, but I would love to see more dorms for upperclassmen as well. I always hear students are scrambling to find housing for their remaining years at VCU. Overall, I love VCU, its diverse and city emerged campus, has set a new experience one cannot get other campuses!
