Defining: Excellence

“Exciting,” “stimulating” and “challenging” are just some of the adjectives our students use to describe their academic experiences in the Honors College. Our program, which emphasizes collaborative, problem-solving, experiential learning, takes advantage of our unique setting: all of VCU and Richmond are our classrooms.

Small, discussion-based classes in which students engage closely with one another and their instructors – who are among the top faculty at VCU – along with our strong sense of community provide our students with the benefits of a small, liberal arts college while being fully integrated into a large, urban university.
