5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Virginia State University(VSU) is an excellent college choice with absolutely phenomenal professors and students from all different backgrounds. As a second semester freshman here at VSU, I must say, at first I was unsure of what to expect as far as campus life goes. When most hear the word "college" they think parties, homework, parties, parties, sororities or fraternities, and of course, parties. VSU quickly brought me to reality. Everyone here takes their college careers extremely serious, some practically live in the library! Not only are students here striving to excel in their respected field, but many of these students have no problem with standing up for what they believe in. There is inspiration everywhere! Virginia STate University, in a short time span, has taught me to be unapologetic in who I am, seek knowledge, walk in pride for my school, and has changed me for the better. VSU! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT!

Health & Safety: For the most part, I feel safe on campus. Late at night, when no one is out, it can be a little bit nerve wrecking sometimes, but other than that I feel safe.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There have been a number of campus crimes committed at VSU but it's never been anything too extreme or out of control. Most of the time, campus police has it under control. When it comes to sexual assault, me or anyone close to me has not been effected by it. Faculty definitely makes sure that we are all educated on how to prevent sexual assaults and what to do if you or someone else is assaulted.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing on campus is actually very nice. Of course the freshman dorms are older so you can see the age when you look inside the rooms. But the newer buildings look very nice and are very clean.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not apart of a Greek letter organization, but I can definitely say that they play a key role in the social life at school. They are also a lot more involved with the campus than I expected. I only expected to see them in party settings but they are very involved to better the school and bring others together.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I'm not huge on sports, but I do enjoy the sports facilities and the game. The other students and supporters give the games life and make experience more fun for me.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, my experience at Virginia State has been an amazing one. Coming into college, I wasn't sure what to expect. But VSU has definitely changed me for the better. I personally thought college was going to be all about parties and not getting anything done. Virginia State definitely proved me wrong. I've never seen so many students take their college careers so serious! Many of the students are dedicated to making the campus a better place socially and academically. They truly stand up for what they believe in and it has definitely been an inspiration to me. In high school, I was a decent student but I had trouble applying myself to my school work. After a semester or two at VSU, my outlook on school definitely changed. After finishing my sophomore year there, I can definitely look back and say that VSU has changed me for the better. I would definitely recommend this school for anyone.
