The thing about this school is you have to make it yours. I see a lot of negative reviews and Its really shocking! I picked it because I grew up in Virginia and always wanted to go here. I got into multiple schools here but I chose VCU and though I have some regrets, I am pretty happy about coming here. It is very diverse and I have had some amazing professors. I love my major and I can't believe how much I have learned. I will be attending graduate school at some point. Campus is okay. not in love with it. It is generally safe as long as you are smart. Would not recommend going out at night by yourself AT ALL. Especially in the north part of campus by marshall and goshen street above the siegel center. Franklin street is great and kind of the heart of the campus. The RPD and VCU police work very hard to keep you safe. I don't really party. But it is there if you want it. Overall it is a decent school. I enjoyed my time here. I AM proud to be a ram. You just have to give everything you have and make a huge effort. You can't sit back and expect an education to come to you. Be careful with the faculty though!! Staff can be dumb cause this is a big school. Always keep track of your courses and course requirements so you can finish in the appropriate time.
