4 College Senior

Overall Experience: i absolutely love VCU, it's made me more open to different cultures and help me be more social.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are nice and willing to engage actively with their students. The courses are rigorous but intriguing making the study time not a waste of time but a challenging task the leads me toward a better career.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The security is good but the problem is that we live in a city where a lot of crime happens. Even though the campus is the safest part some of it is bound to slip through which is why our security is so tight.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: No one cares whether your greek or not. Greek life is a way to meet people and have fun as wells as helping with studies.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School spirit is 10/10, these people are proud to be rams. Team performance is usually well done along with student being involved to some degree. The facilities are top notch however for athletes and the student can usually use them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The diversity is amazing, so many different people and cultures. The classes are rigorous expected of a college but high grades are attainable by utilizing social interaction, immersive studying, and communicating with professors. VCU's fair, incredulously diverse, and has a unique atmosphere.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: nightlife is decent but nothing special there are a couple clubs downtown and one near campus.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The nightlife here is fun but mostly laid back. Ragers are there but not frequently

3 College Junior

Academics: You get what you put into it. The coursework is difficult at this school and it's one of the hardest places to get an A at.

5 College Junior

Diversity: The school i very diverse in every way and offers a lot of people to meet and grow from

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Nobody is going to pressure you to do drugs, but it's there. School is strict on it if you're on school property but otherwise it's not a big deal.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most of the professors are pretty great. But, like most colleges there are always a few bad ones. RateMyProfessor.com should be man's best friend in college.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: You don't really see enough internship opportunities at VCU. Most students have to go elsewhere to get internships and part-time jobs.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Personally, I feel like VCU Police doesn't do enough to make students feel safe whatsoever. So much more could be done, but just hasn't been.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on-campus isn't too bad. It's kind of an average experience.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students who attend VCU either love it or hate it. If they hate it, they most likely transfer or don't stay around campus on the weekends to find out everything the city has to offer. VCU has several nationally ranked academic programs and is continuing to grow and expand the classes offered to students. There are so many different fields that a student can major in that there's no need to decide right way on a major. More and more students are enrolling at VCU, and instead of being a backup school, it's becoming the first choice for a majority of the incoming freshmen. While outsiders may consider it an art school, VCU students know that it is too diverse to label as any one type of school. Although VCU is in a city and some consider that a danger, the VCU security and police systems are arguably some of the best in the state. 

VCU offers several opportunities for students to join clubs, fraternities, and sororities and even to travel abroad for a semester. They strive to give students the best opportunities knowing that once they leave college they may never be given them again. There are many different ways to socialize with fellow students, from going to athletic events to attending a house party down the street. The city has many different bars and clubs for people to let go of the stress of class and work. VCU has more than 32,000 students, which may seem crazy, but spread throughout the city, it's not an insane amount. It is not uncommon to see someone who may have gone to your high school or someone you randomly met once at a party. Students who love and support VCU the most are active in some aspect and are happy with the decision they made in choosing their major. VCU has a lot to offer, but it's up to each student to take advantage of it and make his or her experience here unique.
