I came to VCU ready to make friends, get involved, and enjoy my time at college, and I'm leaving this spring sorely disappointed at all aspects of this university. While the staff I've met is mostly friendly and a mixture between helpful and unhelpful as most faculties are, it is the students who make this school completely intolerable. More than three-quarters of the people I've met at VCU hate it and have only come because they've been rejected from Tech, UVA, or JMU. The campus is EMPTY on weekends and school spirit is ZILCH. Most plan to leave after one or two years. I really enjoy the campus in general, but it would be a flat out lie to say I have ever felt safe. It has become common practice to see questionable activity at night, be mocked by homeless people, and in less than three months as a student I've heard about four violent crimes against students and witnessed a shooting less than forty feet away from my dorm. Overall, I would really think hard about attending this university, especially if you are from out of state. It is not worth the steep tuition!
