5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love EVMS and it's small-school atmosphere. Most folks are very friendly and we have some top-notch professors and staff!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Super fun, lots of different types of food for all events and situations!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are more cons than pros. Hampton roads is a very crowded area. Housing tends to to be over priced and the tunnels make for a longer drive than most will expect. One pro in particular is that most landlords with give college students cheaper renting rate compare to other tenants.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity on campus is great; this includes instructors as well as students. This is largely due to its location. Hampton Roads is a military town and the vast majority of people come from different walks of life, so diversity is extremely high within this region of Virginia.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office was available for questions and help when I needed it

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The campus is really pretty

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are no sports on campus - we have discounted YMCA memberships

3 College Freshman

Diversity: It's okay - could be more diverse

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I haven't met everyone yet

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Most of the campus has been remodeled in the past few years, so everything is new and state-of-the-art.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security is 24/7 and very visible anywhere students go. They're all extremely friendly, and you can get escorted to your car at anytime, anyday. All students get free physical exams at the health center, as well as a limited number of psychiatric counseling, if needed.

5 College Freshman

Parking: All students get free (aka...built into your tuition of course) on campus parking. Nothing to complain about

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are a fair number of institutional scholarships, though not as many as in other, older schools. However, it is still definitely possible to get outside scholarships if you look diligently.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I did receive admission to some more "prestigious" schools, but my main draw to EVMS was the atmosphere of the student body. I'd never seen medical students who were so genuinely happy and who supported each other even in classes with curved grading scales.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The majority of students on campus are medical students. Here and there, you'll encounter some MPH or PA students, but they tend to have different schedules and use different parts of the buildings. The workload is as to be expected at any medical school, but students here are very apparently happy and able to enjoy their social lives outside of the classroom.

4 College Freshman

Academics: We use sort of a traditional / systems-based hybrid curriculum. Core subjects are still taught separately, but the order of content in each course is somewhat structured so that each organ system is covered with a good amount of overlap between different subjects.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus dining is so-so. As far as quality goes, it's about as good as you'd expect in any dining commons or hospital cafeteria. However, EVMS students get 30% off their entire purchase at the cafeteria, so the value is well worth it!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: For the area, I think Norfolk has a pretty decent selection of cuisines. If you're coming from a bigger city in California or New York, you definitely won't be able to compare the food to how it is back home. There are definitely some AWESOME gems scattered around - you just have to know where to look.

3 College Freshman

Weather: For the area, it's not bad. It gets fairly hot in the summer and quite cold in the winter, but it hardly snows (maybe a day here and there, but not enough to impact daily lifestyle). I come from California, so the weather did take some getting used to. Pretty much anything outside the 40-80 range was considered extreme for me.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a wide variety of food types in the general vicinity. Everything from pizza and burgers to pasta and gyros.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Students drink moderately on the weekends, but nothing out of control. I have never heard or seen any of the students using illegal drugs.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Many Activities to Participate in – EVMS is located in Downtown Norfolk where there are museums, a pretty big shopping mall, Nauticus, and Town Point Park. Granby street is full of great restaurants and bars and a few art galleries are also nearby. The Tide, a rail that runs from EVMS to Newtown Road allows for convenient travel into and out of Downtown Norfolk.

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Lots of diversity, both ethnic, cultural, economic, etc. Everyone works together. It's a very cooperative atmosphere, unlike many other medical schools.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Very Laid Back – Considering everyone is in medical school/PA school, and you'd expect them to all be completely stressed out, everyone is very laid back and friendly!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Tons to Choose from! EVMS is located in downtown Norfolk (the closest thing to a metropolitan environment that you'll find in Hampton Roads). There are tons of places to eat and hang out!
