I have just completed my first year at VCU… and I must say that I feel as though I have learned NOTHING. Basically the coursework is not very challenging at all, and other classmates don't even do thier work.

There is nothing to look at around campus either, very grimy, dirty, and too many homeless men coming up to me and asking for my name or for some money.

The greek life sucks, they will tell you otherwise. But they basically try to boast themselves up, even though they are really pathetic.

Campus life is okay if you like thinking of activites to do on your own, because THIS IS NOT A PARTY SCHOOL. I am a huge partier and i love meeting new people. Basically the parties hear consist of knowing someone who owns a house, who is 21, and knowing the clique they hang out with. You can only party if you're friends with them, and if you are part of thier clique (which is like 5 people) so that's not partying.

I was walking one day, and a guy ran up to me asking if I had cell phone becuause he just got robbed at gunpoint. Then on my last week during finals there was a shooting right outside of my dorms at the Landmark Theater.

PLEASE PLEASE dont go to school if you like to party, and you love beautiful scenery and feeling safe.
