Virginia State University Reviews
I love Virginia State University! Being here at VSU I learned more about myself and how to express myself. The professors here love their students and will go above and beyond for their students but will also push you to your maximum potential they see in you. The professors are always available for students to contact them. Campus food is great! Wednesday's is fried chicken Wednesday's and Fridays is Fish Fry Friday's. Campus has a great tutoring services offered to students. One thing I would like to see Change is all of the dorms updated to modern living for students and get rid of community bathrooms.
Virginia State University is amazing! You feel like you are one big happy family. Everyone takes the time to make you feel welcomed, no matter what the event is. The parties are out of this world, but most importantly the education is great! The professors that the time to help each individual with what he/she needs help with and doesn’t complain or judge them.
Transferring to Virginia State University has been a blessing. I have grown academically as well as mentally. Growing up in a small community, a place where opportunities are very limited to black males, this university has been an eye opener to many possibilities in a great way. I've met many friends and the professors have been great in helping to make this truly a learning experience for me. I am looking forward to my second semester as a Trojans!
