Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 1988

Attending Virginia Commonwealth was the best thing I ever did. The welcoming student body, caring physicians and varied multi cultural opportunities for interaction have made me the well rounded, individual I am today. I obtained my first job at the VCU student Union when it initially opened. I learned to write, explore and be a critical thinker while attending ths school-fond memories .

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

VCU is overpopulated and that makes it very easy to be overlooked or have a persistent problem that is not solved right away. With that being said, it is in the heart of a great city with a range of internship opportunities available.

VCU is a great university; it's student-focused with excellent professors that truly cared about their students. The Mass Communications program was thorough, practical and challenging.

Degree: Mass Communication/Media Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

I went to a university with an urban, city setting. It was open and "hip." It was filled with lots of different types of people - religiously, culturally, politically, socio economically, ethnically, nationally, etc. The diversity was one of my favorite things about it, because I think it is crucial to be surrounded by people who are not like you. It's challenging and exciting to learn about others and forget about your own bubble in the world. It was also affordable for in-state tuition, which was the main deciding factor for me.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

I really liked the urban feel and Richmond is a great city. VCU has a strong social work program that requires students to have 3 semesters of internships in undergrad and this really helped me when looking for jobs after graduating.

Degree: Mass Communication/Media Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

I loved my time at VCU - attending was one of the best decisions I've made. With campus in the middle of the city, students have so many opportunities to get real world experience in the community. I don't think you get the same level of involvement on a private, gated campus.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2009

There is no experience quite like college. It may not be preparation for the real world, but it certainly develops new habits and ideas and prepares you to be a more self-sufficient decision-maker and critical thinker. It is an important social experience as well. While you may not actually use the degree you earn in the way you think, college is still valuable to all employers, regardless of your major or degree. If you can afford it, you should go.
