VCU is one of the best universities in Richmond, VA. VCU has variety of degrees, and certifications for students. 70% of professors put alot of effort in their students and their success. It is well established university with many opportunities offering both the necessity of education and activities in order for the students to start their careers and goals.
I absolutely adored my experience with VCU music. I not only felt prepared to enter my field, but I am shown on a weekly basis how much further my degree has served me when compared to my colleagues from neighboring state universities. My program was small enough that my voice was heard, yet large enough in breadth and scope that I would've been prepared to enter a variety of teaching situations. I have no words for how grateful I am to have had this experience with VCU. I am even more grateful to be able to take this knowledge and support and pay it forward to my 500 students.
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.
