After Virginia Commonwealth University

I have been attending VCU for three months now and it has probably been the best three months of my life. I enjoy the independence and freedom, but Virginia Commonwealth offers many activities and room to express one's self through those activities. The campus is very diverse and I enjoy the content environment it offers. VCU was the best choice for my major and it is not too far from home. I would rate this school's survey with ten stars if I could. I love it here so much!

I went on a campus tour and it was a really great experience; the tour guide answered questions I didn't even know I had! The campus is beautiful, it is really obvious that it is in the heart of the city, and it's great, although it isn't for people who like a more rural setting: it's BUSY. I got to meet with a professor in my intended area and he was absolutely great to work with: he answered all of my questions, informed me on future prospective events, and even gave sat with me one-on-one to discuss my potential to succeed at VCU. I would definitely recommend this school.

I recently transferred to VCU and i am really enjoying my first few weeks here. The atmosphere and diversity here is amazing. There really isn't a day where some type of event is going on here on campus. VCU as a whole loves to keep there students engaged and constantly learning; even outside of the classroom. The staff that i have interacted with are knowledgeable and care for the students. I think have found my home here at VCU.
