Student & Graduate Reviews (36)
Virginia Commonwealth University is a really good school. Most of the professors are great. Some I did not like but that is to be expected. VCU is diverse and it was very refreshing to lean about from students with different backgrounds, I would recommend the school.
Virginia Commonwealth University offers students an opportunity to grow and pursue a career of their choice. It is the perfect place to find yourself and learn what is and isn't right for you. I appreciate my experiences and what I have learned at VCU.
Overall, I am very satisfied with VCU. I have had some amazing instructors who have made a huge impact on my life. The university is located in the heart of Richmond, Virginia, which offers a lot of cultural diversity. If you are looking for an university that thinks outside the box, this school is for you!
Great campus in the city of Richmond. The city of Richmond in the past 20 years has helped rebuild the city. It is now a clean and safe city. When I first arrived on campus, I was afraid of the surrounding area. I have recently visited the campus for an alumni event and felt very safe. Virginia Commonwealth University and Richmond offer so many social and cultural opportunities for students, that I would not hesitate recommending the school or city to anyone. The location of the campus is a great plus. Day trips to the nation's capital, the beach, or to the mountains are all within a two hour drive from campus.
VCU has an amazing biology program. The first two years of gen eds are strictly to filter out the weak. The last two years, your classes will be smaller, more involved, more engaging, and professors will be extremely passionate about their field. do not waste your time, check rate my professor and make sure you get the best professors for your most difficult classes. you will have a great education if you do it right.
The Engineering school definitely needs some improvement, but it was overall a great experience. I wish there were more course opportunities for Chemical Engineering students. Students would definitely benefit from a co-op program, which is something I hope they implement in the future.
VCU is a great university to attend. There are numerous opportunities for students to network and connect with other students and companies. The diversity of the campus is great and you can find a place for yourself no matter your age, ethnicity or background. VCU is an overall great school of choice and you'll get as much out of it as you'll allow yourself.
I enjoyed the community at VCU. The cost and different office made my experience unpleasant at times. The school had seemed to steer away from a community and turned into all about money. My professors and classmates were awesome and helped with the stress of paying for VCU. Since I left in 2013 VCU has upgraded a lot but the cost is starting to get ridiculous.
If you want to be in a big city with a small-town feel; to be surrounded by artists, academics, and professionals; and to live in a place that is full of history, vibrant with street art, and hosts some of the best food in Virginia, go to Virginia Commonwealth University. The teachers expect excellence, and give excellence in return; the campus is navigable and the students friendly. This place is almost surreal in that the school boasts extreme quality of education, while being planted firmly in the middle of one of the most unique and diverse cities on the East coast.
Overall VCU is a good university with great faculty, particularly within the anthropology department. The courses within the department are engaging and emphasize critical thought and writing skills. In terms of the campus life, Richmond is a great city with lots to do.
