Am learning a lot
Virginia Union University is a very small school. That's a plus when in the classroom because you work close with your professors. You get more out of your learning my classroom.
Am enjoying being here
Virginia Union University is a very enjoyable campus because the environment, the different cultures, and the history behind the school is very interesting.
Tips for prospective students
My tips for prospective students are get involved on campus and it would give you better position on your campus. campus does get a little boring sometimes so just get involved and there would be a lot of events to unbore you!

Learning wise depending on you major Virginia Union has a lot to offer you have small class sizes and your professors are more than willing to always lend a helping hand
Am enjoying being here
I came here knowing the school was an HBCU but I believed the campus woudl be a little more diverse, also the majority of the people here are ghetto still have a hood mentality and disrespectful. To me it feels like i am dealing with a bunch of immature children ( no matter where you go you will encounter the same problem )
Tips for prospective students
Establish your self early on in the school year show your professor's that you want to learn and they will go head over heels for you. Campus Gets boring very easily ( no cable ) so you'll have to find things to occupy your time, and lastly MAKE SURE YOUR FINANCES ARE IN ORDER

Most of the teachers are really helpful, and they try to make sure that you have everything you need to be successful in their classes. Since the classes are smaller, the teachers have the ability to know you on a personal level, and that helps when it comes to extra credit
Am enjoying being here
Richmond in general is a little boring if you don't have a car, but there is always something close to do if its just going t hang out at VCU, if you do have a car the opportunities are endless, and it helps when you have good friends on campus.
Bang for the buck
The education that most professors provide is exactly what you're going to need if you plan on going to grad school.
Tips for prospective students
Have fun, and make the most out of it. Union is what you make it.
Great for these types of students
Focused, looking to join a BGLO, people majoring in religious studies
