4 College Freshman

Scholarships: the financial aid process was the biggest part of getting into school, it went very well though and they helped with all questions i had

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: the food in cafe is okay they tend to cook the same food over and over so it gets old. the cafe is pretty clean they keep it well maitained, and they do a good job with giving us a variety of foods. they also make food for vegetarians which is awesome.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: living on campus is very nice. Our campus is very clean, its a very safe environment for students to be. there are many social events around and there is a social area on campus for just that. it cost alot to live on campus but the housing process is pretty easy

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks have their own plots on the grass. Do not step on one without permission.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The James is nicer. The Birches is run down and needs a lot of maintenance and bug spray.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties are really fun at Mansion. Most of the time you can find a great party in the Birches or the James or some other neighboring apartments where students live.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Freshman year is interesting because when you get to your dorm, you find out that there's an 11 pm curfew on weekdays and 1 am on weekends so no clubbing unless you want to pay a $25 fine. The fine system, however is lacking. I barely made it to curfew half the time and never fully received a fine. Depends on what building you live in. Dont get caught with drugs or alcohol, or you'll get kicked out

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The people in the office listen to you and answer your questions

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Your meal plan isnt very big. You either have cafe or Mondo's.

3 College Junior

Athletics: In progress of transitioning to becoming great

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The process of constructing more apartment complexes is great.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Enough parties to choose from.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Put more effort in making the food

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: All though its historical, quality should still be a priority.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Drug and alcohol use on campus is very strict. School policies affect students in a positive way in my opinion.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I personally do not like the food. The food most of the time is under cooked. Since I am allergic to seafood, it is sometimes hard to get a good meal. The dining hall needs to be expanded There is never enough seats to sit around noon, since everyone typically have a class at one.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It's not much to say. They're just greek.

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.
