What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I enjoy going to this school. I've thought about transferring a few times just for the fact that it is a pretty small school compared to others. The food is okay, they serve chicken all the time and I get tired of eating it. The customer service is pretty bad so be prepared to wait on the phone for at least 15- 20 mins for someone to answer (if the do). Last but not least they have 3 nice dorms; Quads, Gateway, and Moore Hall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Virginia State University! The atmosphere is wonderful there, there's always people out on the yard, enjoying the school and exhibiting school spirit. The only issue I have is with the dorms, they're slightly old and have community bathrooms. The classes are a good size and the professors always have set office hours. The food is good on occasion but the days I'm don't like the cafeteria food we have a Starbucks, chick-Fil-a, and subway on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Virginia State University is that it's an amazing school and a great HBCU. I love my school and I'm proud to be a part of the Trojan family. Everyone gets along and there's always something on campus to do! I came to Virginia State as a transfer and I can honestly say it's one of the best decisions I've made in my 21 years of living!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Deciding to go to college was one of the best decisions I could have made, and the fact that I chose to attend THE Virginia State University made it even better. I am currently a Sophomore Criminal Justice Major, and the classes and professors on campus are very helpful. The environment on campus is great! It feels like a home away from home. No matter where you are on campus, there are other students everywhere to help each other out and encourage them in whatever it is that they do. There is so much support on campus and whatever you may need, someone is there to help you along the way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an HBCU, it is not the best but its not the worst. Eery body knows each other. Majority of people a welcoming. Its a decent school. Classroom size are really small so you will be able to be recognize by your professor. The school is literally in the middle of no where so you have to make the best of it. If you get involved you will have a great college experience but if you don't you will regret it

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe it's a great school and recommend it to anyone. VSU has been a greal place to be in the last 3 years I enjoy it and everyone I have met their has become like family. The education department has been my home away from home and I wouldn't have it any other way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia State University seeks to be a familial university. The campus is fairly small, giving students the ability to know each other and partake in as many organizations/clubs as possible. There is great talent on campus, with an array of poets, actors, singers, dancers, models, musicians, photographers, etc. The students never fail to showcase their talents at anytime. For greater academic progression, professors are usually dependable during and after class, some even go out of their way to make sure that their students have all they need and them some. Personally, I've grown to see my professors as mentors because my department (English) is very small. There are a great amount of things that VSU can work on, such as gathering the students to come together on certain issues to make sure that the administration hears their voices, the food, and the conditions of some of the dorms. However, the university tackling all of the negatives on campus to make them positive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia State University is an interesting campus. With our campus you must choose to be involved in things, nobody forces you to do anything. Your education and social life is what you make it, it is possible to graduate with a 3.0 and multiple job offers lined up prepared for life. At the same time is possible for someone with a higher GPA to graduate with no honors return home with no job and work at retail. The teachers and faculty are on campus to support you not to carry you.
