    Use every resource pertaining to you; use your counselors, the Career Center, your school advisers, the internship coordinators, and tutors. The campus is large, so walk it a few times and get to know it before going to class on your first day.

    I would say if you are interested in attending VCU in the near future then you would need to know that is a open campus and anyone from the outside of the city can be on campus. For the most part the staff is nice and want you to succeed, but be prepared to be in a classroom w/ 100+ students.

    Don't take the graded assignments lightly. Just because your teacher drops the lowest of one type of thing doesn't mean you should waste the opportunity and just not do a homework, or not study for a quiz. There aren't nearly as many graded documents in College - homework is merely used as a supplement in all of my classes, and it's never graded. Tests/Exams are far and few apart, and quizzes occur weekly, though that still doesn't give you much room for failure. Find one student in each of your classes to befriend, and I don't mean someone you already know. The point is to have someone available to join you in study, not someone to chat with. You'll find that studying one-on-one with someone you're compatible with but aren't in the same friend group as serves as a superb means by which to excel on the graded assignments. Additionally, don't waste any opportunities to apply to scholarships, and apply for financial aid early on. If there's a mistake in your aid, you want to catch it as early as possible, as the available funds that the school has to offer decrease with time.

    Look into majors and concentrations that are worth your payment in the school. VCU offers a wide variety of concentrations where it's easy for you to succeed. Another great tip is that prospective students should take in all that VCU has to offer, whether it's on-campus dorm life, student services and activities, and academic engagement.
