Listen up, because I'm going to tell you the straight truth about VCU: if you are a xenophobic kid from the suburbs, egocentric or just generally "normal", you will not like this school. We're a community of artists, musicians and general other bohemian denizens. It is common to see kids hotboxing the storage closets in the residence halls or snorting lines of adderall off textbooks at 5AM. If you can't stand cigarettes then don't come here because everyone smokes.

Concerning safety everyone gets their panties in a bunch because Richmond has a high crime rate. Listen, even though there are various hobos milling about the city generally speaking they keep to themselves or are at least cordial. Stay near campus and don't go on the other side of Broad at night and you should be fine.

If you were that one kid in highschool who didn't really mesh with the crowd because you were interested in other things and were just fundamentally different from your peers, you will love this school with your heart and soul. If you have an ego and consider yourself "too good" to live in shitty housing, talk to "sketchy" people with tattoos and piercings or if you can't deal with "obnoxious" art students, then just bite the damn bullet and go to JMU with all the other kids just like you.

responseWow, are you a girl? What girl says "don't get your panties in a bunch?" You sound so edgy, angry and hostile. Angry, man. You wear "fuck off" like a t-shirt.

You know what? I'd dare to say it's NOT common to see ppl hotboxing in the closets and snorting adderall, and that NOT everyone smokes. I'm sure it happens, but I don't think it's common. Why would I say that? Well for one, I went to VCU for a year. For two, I don't hang out with sketchballs.

Getting on your soapbox and saying

EVERYONE is like this, I love it, you better love it too and if you don't like it, go FUCK yourself
isn't gonna make people want to go to your school, by the way.

At least you're honest about how shitty the school is. Don't be bitter about not being accepted by the mainstream and then take it out on everyone who's reading this article and deciding whether to go to this school or not; in that case maybe you should change your worldview cause not being accepted by mainstream people PROBABLY has something to do with your negative attitude.

questionAre you trying to make VCU's reputation go lower than it already is? That's some pride you have for your school there.
