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 diversity of the community makes the college more interesting because there are different cultures all around you. There is always an event going on, hosted by one of the many clubs that are at the school. Student life is very active because there are festivals, contests, or games that students can be involved in.

    Virginia Commonwealth is a fun school with lots of opportunities. There is a lot to do at the college and around it since it is located in the city. However, it is not very easy on out of state students, since the tuition is drastically higher than that of in state tuition.

    The campus is like nothing I have seen before. I visited couple other colleges like Virginia Tech and Lynchburg college, but neither were as vibrant as VCU. The campus is in Richmond, VA and seems to be the hub for a lot of the activities for downtown. I am an older student returning to school and even though I am one of the older students, I still enjoy the atmosphere and seamless integration with the city.

    Virginia Commonwealth University is a diverse learning environment with many opportunities for students to grow and get involved. There's always something to do and the location is prime for a adventuring out of campus. There are also great companies in the area to work/internship at while you're enrolled with classes.
