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.

    Virginia Commonwealth University is one of the greatest public art schools that you could ever find, with excellent hands-on programs in urban arts, sculpting, fashion, theater and cinema, to name a few. Other departments, such as medicine, science, engineering, history, business and humanities, also have a lot to offer students pursuing specific careers. The urban campus is home to students with different concentrations and perspectives, taking advantage of the numerous social and educational opportunities abound.

    VCU has a beautiful campus that has a feeling of a home away from home. The library is being renovated so that there will be even more windows and I can't wait! Also, the gym here is HUGE, I will probably be spending a bit too much time there if I get accepted.

    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.
