    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.

    Richmond has been referred to as the hood from a few people, so its best to make a lot of friends to travel with or at least some burly bodyguards! VCU has been known to have a lot of robberies on the campus so its best to make sure all your stuff is in a secure place when you are traveling on the campus; leave your valuables behind a locked door!

    Freshman year is equal parts getting used to being free and dealing with change. Studying is actually necessary to pass now, and every day will not be a walk in the park. VCU is a great place to meet new people, get a better grasp on your future, all the while taking courses that really gear you towards your goals. The question is, how bad do you want it?

    It may seem like a big and scary school but once you get used to the school, it becomes home. There's always something fun going on. Students look out for one another and try to others involved. They have a lot of resources available such as the writing center and the a lot of SI Sessions and tutoring opportunities.

    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.
