    Beware of bikers and cars, they don't like to kept waiting so hustle across those streets. Don't be afraid to let that true personality to be released. College is a place to start a new path for yourself.

    Visit VCU! It may not be for you, because it is in the middle of downtown Richmond. You're not going to be at all separated from the average city-goers. Though, the buildings, commons, etc. are open so that anyone can enter them (except really late), VCU does make safety and security a priority especially in their dorms and apartments.

    Do not be nervous about coming to college! It is a time for having fun, creating new experiences for yourself, and being on your own making decisions as an adult. Be safe and be aware of the things around you.

    Visit the campus! This isn't for everyone - take the time to walk around and see everything. If you're looking for a secluded or gated-in campus, VCU isn't for you. If you're looking for a campus that mirrors after-college life and gets you ready to live in an urban/city environment, VCU is definitely for you. You should also take time to meet with administrators and teachers within the discipline that you'd like to study.

    I would recommend that you save up your money if your planning on attending because it is a really expensive school. VCU doesnt give out book vouchers, which means you have to pay for books out of pocket and parking at VCU is about $330 dollars a semester. I suggest you be prepared to spend a pretty penny each semester.
