I currently a student at VCU returning for my sophomore year and I must say that I am excited to get back to Richmond, VA this fall. As an engineering student I can tell that the education that I am receiving from VCU presents me as well as others attending this diverse university, with a chance to master subject areas even with no prior knowledge of any particular subject area.

This provides students with grounds for branching out by doing and trying new things, and also meeting different new types of people.

    VCU is a great place if your want to immerse yourself in an urban environment. The fluid, borderless campus makes socializing and getting involved easy. Life at VCU is interesting, and there's always something going on.

    On a Scale of 1 through 10, I would rate VCU as an 6 For out of state students. If you an in state student I would rate VCU as a 8, only because in state students have an advantage over out of state students like myself.

    I wasn't sure if the city life was what i wanted, but after being here for a semester I don't regret it. Not only are the people great and the school spirit high, but its a nice place to learn. Plus there are so many food places there is no way you are without good food.

    VCU is superb in so many aspects. It is very competitive to gain acceptance. Work, work, work should be on every student minds the minute they begin their semesters.
