    Virginia Union University is a private school built on Christian principles. It is a landmark for African Americans as the Underground Rail Road and selling of slaves took place right on the grass. It's roots include a former jail and hotel. Not to mention, our Alumni have conquered great obstacles for example Douglas L. Wilder who is the first African American Governor in the history of the United States.
