Virginia Commonwealth University Graduate Reviews

11 reviews
As a graduate student taking night classes, I interact with a smaller bubble of people. I enjoy my classmates and my professors. I plan to apply to become an RA (just as I did in my undergraduate degree back in NYC) because it will allow me to be more engaged in the student community at VCU. As for my classes, I feel they are going to be helpful in my career as a multimedia journalist and I'm incredibly lucky to be taught by a 34-year-Washington Post veteran!

The campus, staff, and students are all so welcoming! The city has done a fabulous job providing a safe place for students to live and learn.
It is excellent place to have an experience as a student. It imparts all most all fields of study. To fine tune Virginia Commonwealth University teaches ACPE course. The course is called Certificate in Patient Counseling. That course is really wonderful one for budding ministers, evangelists and pastors.

Thank you
