Students talking

I was drawn to VCU for the campus, the city atmosphere. I love the urban vibe and how diverse the university is. I was also looking at other schools, but VCU is just more kinds of people, and more of my kind of people.There are so many different options for what I can do once I graduate, and Honors College gives me the edge.
