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. The past two semesters at VCU I mastered programs such as Microsoft Excel and MatLab that I had no prior knowledge of, but would have eventually needed for the real-world....

    The people here are about as friendly as it gets, and the teachers are all more than willing to help you where possible. The advisers aren't quite as competent as one would expect from a college of this size, and the Financial Aid office has a tendency to lose track of papers, but they all try their best to help you -- at least, they do when face-to-face. The campus itself is a little dirty, but it becomes very home-y after a period, and the other students all seem more than happy to help you on your journey as a college student.

    It seems like a great place for what i plan to major in. I want to major in biology or some science since i want to be a radiologist. When you step on the campus you can literally feel the enthusiasm emanating from the students.

    If you want to get away, without going far from home, VCU is great. The city isn't too big and VCU is a diverse and accepting school. Even if we don't have a football team, VCU compensates by providing a greater variety of programs, courses and support.
