    My tips for prospective students would be to volunteer a lot and be involved in whatever makes you happy. Also do not be scared about coming to Richmond, Richmond is an amazing, beautiful, and engaging city with many things to explore. Apply early and work hard in school, I know it seems like a given but VCU is not for people who are not willing to work hard for what they want.

    Make sure you work out your room arrangement early and get it in on time. Also, the financial aid is a mess and not very helpful so make sure you work on that early too.

    Be sure to read reviews or ask members of the VCU community about dorm recommendations, as some of the facilities are getting old and are a tad moldy. If you or your family is worried about your safety, there really isn't a need to. As long as you make smart decisions (and carry some pepper spray as precaution), you will be fine! VCU is so fun, and extracurricular and social life is amazing. However, be careful not to let that take place of your education!

    Get ready to experience different cultures and opinions. there are going to be a lot of people who will think differently from you but respect what they have to say. Don't be afraid to speak up and be opinionated. Try out different clubs and organizations before you decide against them.
