Elizabeth H. - 12/6/2016
Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2015
"VCU was an excellent school. After two years in community college, I transfered easily to VCU with guaranteed acceptnce. The Exercise Science Program is growing, but improving every year. Some of my classes were not as well organized as I would have hoped, but I know they are improving and becoming one of the largest programs at VCU. My advisor was extremely helpful and made sure I had all my classes I needed to graduate on time."

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018
"VCU is one of the best colleges for earning an engineering degree, while maintaining the family unit cohesion that other colleges tend to forget about. I would greatly recommend attending this college if you are in search of an engineering degree and a family away from home."

First step toward a path of enlightenment - 6/18/2016
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."

Brie - 5/31/2016
Degree: Communications
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."
