What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a freshman, I noticed Virginia State University is a family-oriented campus. The faculty and students are considered family. They offer multiple resources to ensure that their students be successful over the course of 4 years. The professors here actually care and they make sure they are available when you are in need of help. Needless to say, VSU is my home away from home. I feel comfortable and honored to call VSU my alma mater. I’m a proud Trojan! Hail State!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My ties to Virginia State go beyond that of a traditional student as I am also a staff member. However, still young and in my struggle years at FULL force. Virginia State University brought me a HBCU experience and affordability that I so desperately need in my life in order to gain higher education. Would I ditch this place for a shot at my dream school Vanderbilt? In a heart beat! But, that is not an option.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Not a very safe school with a lot of drugs and alcohol but a good education. if you can get passed that then its the perfect school for you and its a very cheap school to go to with a lot of scholarly opportunities that are offered since the drop out rate at the school is high.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia State University is a fine place to attend school. I was a little intimidated when I first arrived but I have grown to love it. I feel comfortable my professors are great. I was excited because it is a HBCU. I've only been here for a few months but I am glad I chose to attend this University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia State University boasts a beautiful campus in Petersburg, VA. The school has an amazing social and academic atmosphere for personal and professional development. The Department of Chemistry and Physics provides strong foundational knowledge and experience due to the small, focus-group style class sizes (10-15 students). The faculty within the department are extremely helpful and maintain positive communication beyond graduation, updating students and recent graduates with professional/learning opportunities. Highly recommended!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I love and represent my school everyday. Virginia State works to better the experience for the students. Our new administration has been in constant thought of solutions to issues that hinder the VSU experience.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about VSU is the lack of organization and ability to hold staffing accountable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far the school seems great and everyone seems welcoming to incoming freshmen. I feel a peace at the school, which means I will thrive there. I don't need to go to a high ranked college to succeed. I am here to learn and to take what I learn into the workforce, that's what I'll do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia State University is an amazing college to attend. There is always something to do and there are plenty of people to have conversations with. At VSU we have a very interactive president and VSU is a big happy family. Of course there are ups and downs, but every college has ups and downs. I am glad that I attend Virginia State University it is really for me. Hail State!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia State University is one of the greatest schools in the state. Life and culture thrive at this HBCU in an unbelievable way. Everyone is passionate about their education and about the school itself. School pride is through the roof. The campus is incredibly beautiful with older buildings, and is located conveniently between Petersburg and Colonial Heights so there is always something to do.
