Last updated October 23, 2017 in Student-focused by Division of Student AffairsWhat I appreciate about VCU is the diverse community and VCU's effort, alongside the student body, to unite the entire campus. This includes different programs and events, both university and student lead, that are inclusive and welcoming to all who want to participate. With this, new students, students of different backgrounds, returning students, and even staff and faculty are able to feel truly at home.
Last updated October 23, 2017 in Student-focused by Division of Student AffairsI went to VCU originally for Creative Advertising degree. I graduated in 2012 and I fell in love with Richmond immediately and then fell in love with the school and the campus. I was a little nervous about being in such a large campus environment right away but you still have a small town feel and a community feel at this campus. There are so many opportunities and great experiences I have been able to gain while being here so it was really a no brainer when I decided I wanted to go back to school, VCU was definitely top of the list for sure.
Last updated October 23, 2017 in Student-focused by Division of Student AffairsI appreciate VCU's diversity! It's actually one of the biggest reasons I decided to attend. I went to high school in a location that was not diverse and I found it very hard to keep to my roots and not lose myself. Once at VCU I immediately joined the Latino Student Association and finally felt like I had people who not only understood what I had experienced, but had also experienced it themselves.

Last updated October 23, 2017 in Student-focused by Division of Student AffairsSomething I have always loved about VCU is the support that students are able to receive. We have some amazing and well-connected faculty, staff, even students and I love the fact that I cannot go a week without hearing a success story. Diversity and opportunity are the things that brought me here but SUCCESS is what is keeping me in place.
