It's the largest university in Virginia because it accepts all the leftovers who weren't smart enough for UVA, weren't rich enough for U of R, and didn't know enough about beer and football for Tech. There's no football team so I hope you like basketball. If you're not a part of Greek Life, good luck finding a party... unless creepy alleys and sketchy houses in the Fan are your thing. More than 90% of the students here are from Virginia... and when they refer to "out-of-state" students, it really means North Carolina or Maryland. Yankees are NOT welcome. Great art program and an even better medical school, but if you're not coming for either of those, stay above the Mason-Dixon line.
Wow! You came all the way to VCU from New Jersey? Say "coffee!"

VCU is where its at!
Largest university or college in the state of Virginia.
Men's basketball team has the best record in the league (all years combined).
Very Crazy University
Football team is still undefeated. Go and find out about it.
Supports the homeless through Monroe Park.
Lots of off the wall art students, pre-med freaks, and ghetto pimps.
Boy: I don't want to go to UVA, it's too preppy. I don't want to go to VT, they're a bunch of loosers. JMU is in the middle of nowhere.
Girl: Why not go to VCU so you can party and pass class too?
Virginia Commonwealth University. A large urban campus located in downtown Richmond Virginia. Team mascot is the Rams. Colors are Black and Yellow.
I go to VCU, and harrison street is where it's at.
Currently the largest school in the state of Virginia with 30,000+ students. Largest freshman class in the history of VCU with 3,381 students making up the class of 2011.
This school accepts everyone and everything. Thursday night party scenes consist of BYOB
so if you can't contribute, you're stuck in your dorm room. Frats run Friday nights, with freshmen girls filling their sketchy headquarters.
Most freshmen stay in Brandt Hall (mostly filled with NOVA stuck up bitches) most sterile living headquarters, Rhoads (AKA Roach Motel) where the presence of roaches is nothing new, partying is always happening, and quiet hours are disregarded, or Johnson Hall, the number one place to smoke pot in (according to High Times magazine) and where most artsy-fartsy people live in. Lots of random ass shit going on.
Dining Dollars and Ram Bucks allow you to dine at Subway, Chick-fil-A, Starbucks, among other things.
Campus is in the middle of the city, so it's hard to distinguish who's a Ram, and who's just some random person waiting for the bus by the cathedral.
VCU has no football team, but it has Homecoming. You need to like basketball if you want to be a Ram.
"VCU Football: Still undefeated."
acronym for Viet Cong University
man, them VCU muhfakkas jumped outta them trees and stuck a AK 47 up my ass yo!
