The student body here at Virginia College - Richmond is like any college campus you attend. You are going to have a diverse group of people from all walks of life. I for example am a Muslim born and raised here in America. Is it hard for me to interact with others in the student body, no. We as student have common goal in that is to come to school, do the course work of our chosen career choice, graudation and applied it to secure a life we want for ourselves. The challenges we face are not unique in anyway. We all have struggles with the economic climate issues of today. We all have challenges with our sexuality some more then others because of how we express ourselves. We all have daily struggles to meet deadlines with term papers just any student who wants a education. When it's said in done, part of college is about meeting the daily challenges of college and over coming them.
