    The basketball games are exicting to go to. If you don't like to watch sports than there are many activities like mountain bike riding, rock climbing, hiking, water rafting, etc.. to do with the Cary street gym. If you're not into sports at all than there are events for the art students to attend. Around the campus are also many museums to visit.

    There are always events hosted by many organizations that have music and free food! Every first Friday of the month as well everyone is welcomed to walk along broad street because there are many art show casings. They close down broad street for this events and there are many things that are given away as well activities that can be done. Also, on Monroe Park, there are always people hanging out and doing some type of activity. For example on nice days there are people who tight rope across Monroe Park and they always invite people who are interested to try it out.

    Go to belle Isl, go to any of the parks around campus, watch the basketball games (go rams), go to the gym where they offer many classes, go to Cary Town; a street area with many local shops and restaurants, go swimming or hot tubing at the gym, or go rock climbing with friends.

    I love Richmond,VA. I grew up here and the best part about VCU is the proximity to the James River. All year round, you can find people down by the river. The city is historic and great music is often showcased down on Brown's Island near the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond.

    Get involved in any type of organization from Greek Life to the Peppas. Do whatever is going to make your experience worthwhile. There are the infamous basketball games, volleyball games and soccer games to name a few. There is homecoming, Fall Block and more.

    This is up to the individual since fun is a matter of preference and perspective, but the University clubs, programs, and the city of Richmond offer incredible variety. VCU works with Richmond to let its students know of events that are upcoming. If academia is your thing, there is no shortage of intellectual meetings to attend.

    VCU is located in a city so what can you not do? There is numerous places to eat with a variety of foods. I think our gym is very entertaining place to go to because we have basketball courts, swimming pool with a slide, a rock wall, and ect. We also have a park called Monroe part, where you can just sit out and enjoy the environment on a nice day.
