Like any other college, you experience here will be what you decide to make of it. The University however definitely does its part in fostering an environment where you will have the opportunity to make the most of your college years. VCU is the biggest college in VA and my favorite part of my undergrad years there was the true diversity of its student body. At this school you get a college experience without being in some protected fantasy world behind brick walls. The campus sprouts up seamlessly with the city and you are more in touch with "the real world." There are students of literally every type and interest…from art/music students, the premeds, international students and frat/sorority types…the rich and the poor. That is probably the University's best aspect…true diversity not just numbers to fulfill "quotas". Also, the school is building brand new facilities that should make the engineering and business/advertising schools very competitive really soon. Plus the beautiful James river flowing right through downtown Richmond isn't a bad perk either. I loved my time at this school and wouldn't trade it for anything. I am now in Med school pursuing an MD/PhD. GO RAMS!
