I love VCU. I will always love VCU. I hope you eager students looking up reviews on universities will consider VCU. My first recommendation: Don't listen to ANYONE. Not even me. Visit the campus yourself and go on a tour. Check out the area yourself and see how you feel about it. I chose to attend this school instead of JMU and I feel I made the right decision. I made so many friends who I still keep in touch with even today and I learned so much. I always had wonderful teachers. I loved the food, and even if you want to eat elsewhere there are great places ALL OVER the campus. I enjoyed walking and biking everywhere too. it really keeps you in shape and parking is AWFUL so don't bring a car. You don't need one. Dorms are not that great. I lived off campus my last two years and It was much better than the dorms. Sports are great. Academics are better than I expected them to be. The thing about VCU is a lot of people get accepted but not everyone finishes. You will find major classes to be much better than your gen eds. Financial aid office is really the only bad part. I had some trouble with them. Tuition isn't too bad instate though. Campus crime is always a big discussion. It is very safe on campus and off campus you just always know your surroundings like any city. I have been out as late as 3 am and had nothing happen. Stick with friends or groups after dark and follow the rules and you will be just fine. I love VCU and I always will. I'm happy with my degree and I am happy I was able to attend this school. I hope you will consider VCU as one of your options when choosing a college!
