I rated is for the School of Mass Communications.
After having been completely disheartened and beat down, I decided
to change my major in my senior year. A
handful of teachers have been excellent and caring but most
of them assign ridiculous busy work and pointless activities. VCU should be called Hassle University. Every. Single. Time.
I wanted or needed to do something they “required,” an
impossible hassle ensued. If you work full-time, forget VCU.
Either go to another school or try to work
part-time. With the amount of classes they don't offer,
you'll never get through it in 4 years. Most
of my friends have been here for 4+ years because
of the lack of availability of core classes required to
graduate. Just another VCU hassle!
My advisors in the
School of Sociology, however, have been readily available and so
much more helpful than any advisor I spoke to in
Mass Comm. If you're in the school, beware that
you have to apply to get in to MASC 203.
Yeah, you have to apply to get into a
prerequisite. I found that utterly ridiculous and unnecessary.
And they don't tell you that until after the deadline.
So just a heads up! And if you
decide to major in Mass Comm, get used to every
single teacher telling you that you won't get a job,
you'll be fired from every job you do get and
you'll only make 15,000 a year. I heard that
in my first Mass Comm class and most classes since.
I finally took it as a warning and left
