Breaking Out of Our Comfort Zones

Division of Student Affairs • Student-focused • October 23, 2017

I appreciate the diversity. I knew that would be the reason I would come to VCU, however I did not expect this level of inclusion on campus. Coming here has amplified my inquisitiveness and allowed me to break out of my comfort zone.

Being Heard

The thing that I appreciate most about VCU is the diversity. Learning about other people cultures and orientations is fascinating.

Working for Your Voice

What 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.

Finding Your Niche

I 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.

Getting Involved Across the Globe

I 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.
