Health & Safety: We had several incidents of students being roofied. This was not on campus though this was off campus. The school is generally safe just not the environment around it.

Campus Housing: I live in LLC which is the new dorm. It is a new dorm and already students are tearing it apart. There is trash everywhere all along the stairwells. The janitors fail to keep it cleansy. Huntley Hall needs to be remodeled. Storer Hall needs better occupants. Newman Hall is decent, just the bathrooms are nasty. MacVicar Hall is usually just ratchet

Greek Life: Greek life is okay. It's just there is no greek unity within the greeks. They often look down on anyone who is not greek or apart of a different organization.

Athletics: Our basketball gym has no windows. There are a bunch of pillars blocking the view of a basketball game. Our football stadium bleachers are not sturdy and needs to be improved. We are the second oldest operated field in the country and honestly nothing has changed since it was originally built.

Overall Experience: Everything at this school is bias. If you dont act a certain way you simply wont get in certain programs. Everyone here is judgemental and usually stick to their own group. There is not many programs, activities, or meetings that sparks an interest in me. There is no variety here.

Greek Life: Greek life at Virginia Union University is taken serious and exercised as a valuable contributor to Virginia Union University's pride and prestige. Throughout the campus there will be a section that tributes the different Greek Life available at this university. Member of a particular Greek Life represent their affiliation by wearing their Greek Life's color every week to show their pride and membership. Form time to time the members of the Greek Life will put on a show that displays the group as a whole through ranting and stepping. Members of Greek Life expect those who are not a part of their group to respect them and their section on campus by not stepping on the grass or area of the section used to tribute that particular Greek Life. Greek Life is looked at as being a fun activity to be part of due to the parties they throw, the feeling of being part of a big family, and the connections that can be made by joining Greek Life.

Athletics: Athletics are very important to Virginia Union University. Athletes pour their heart and soul into what ever sport they are involved in which helps our athletic department do well in contest. Games are strongly supported and all students are encouraged to come out and cheer on the team when playing at home and even away. The athletic department has been very successful over the years as the sport teams here have played hard and well and made it deep into the season. Our athletic teams are very important to this school and cherished by faculty, staff, and students.

Overall Experience: Virginia Union University is full of school pride and the classes are small so your not known as just a number but your teachers get to know your name and you as a student get to have that teacher to student relationship needed to be successful. With the campus being small the buildings where classes are held are close to the dorms students live in so that is helpful. The school is centered around the Baptist religion and due to that they have chapel services every Thursday which helps me stay involved with my Christian faith and belief even away from home. You get to make friends very easily on campus due to its small size making it hardly impossible to not run into seeing the same person at least 2-3 times a day. The campus is serious about its school spirit and try to get the students involved with on site activities at least once a week. Union does not have many parties held on the campus which helps students stay focused on getting their work done and having fun later. The main goal here at Virginia Union University is to earn a degree and here at Virginia Union University the instructors and professors do all they can to help students accomplish that goal.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

As with any other institution, there are problems. Virginia Union University has its fair share of issues, stretching from the administration to the cafeteria food, but, all in all, the students take a liking to the University. Many students come to understand that college is not all about fun, but about prioritizing and knowing what's truly important: an education. It's all right to have fun in college, but the education comes first.

For many students, Virginia Union University wasn't their first choice for a college education, but with time, they come to like the University and are glad to have formed friendships that will last for many, many years. Virginia Union University is a historic university, and the VUU Panthers are very proud of their heritage. Going through college isn't easy, but the students at Virginia Union experience it all and grow as a result. It is a maturing process and some students don't mature as quickly as others do. The University provides opportunities for the alumni to visit the school and do meet-and-greets. The alumni are very proud of their school and frequently represent Union at various functions. Most students, if they had a second chance, might choose another college/university, but they truly don't regret their time spent at Union. Union has given them lots of memories, fun times, and friends.
