Hey everyone! This is just a reminder for students who are now settled on campus that we are still here for you!! If you have any questions about campus like where to park, the best Chinese food (hint: it’s not where you think it is!), tips or tricks of each major or AFO, and anything else student life related just send us a message! If you’d rather send us an email you can hit us up at arttourguide@vcu.edu.

Have a great Welcome Week and semester! You’re awesome!!

The calm before the storm… #oneweekout #studentcountdown #welcomeweek #vcu #rva 🔜 (at The Compass)

Summer is almost over and the school semester almost here! Summer went by so fast. However, for anyone interested in coming on campus for a tour, things will be far more lively here with students around! We hope to see you all on tour soon.-VCUarts Tour Guides

A group of VCU fashion students have the trip of their lifetime exploring Florence, Italy.

Check out some of our Fashion Design students talk about their trip to Florence! The trip they went on is one of VCUarts’ many study abroad trips.You sign up for classes and spend about a month abroad fully immersing the new country around you. Best of all, no matter what major you’re in all trips are open for you to sign up for! Check out more ways to travel through our Global Education Office.

Best,
Jordan W.

thatgirlwiththecurlyfro asked: I love VCU! I've been in the richmond area my whole life and I feel like VCU would be the perfect place for me. I love the arts program and would like to major in fashion merchandising. Is there any tips you can give me for applying or anything of that nature?


Answer:

That’s great! You should check out our website, arts.vcu.edu to see some of our upcoming open house dates for the fall. You should also send us an email at arts@vcu.edu for tons of information. Fashion merchandising is an awesome department! Best of luck with your application process!

In honor of another year completed in the Richmond Mural Project, we wanted to showcase a video of last year’s finished pieces. You can also find out the new 2014 mural locations here. We’re so proud to have a city dedicated to revitalizing the city while celebrating art!

Six years ago, Virginia Commonwealth University established its Office of Sustainability under the careful guidance of Jacek Ghosh, and now, following his departure this spring, a successor is ready to roll up her sleeves and pick up where he left off. Erin Stanforth, director of sustainability, comes to VCU from Portland, Oregon, by way of Boone, North Carolina.

One of the reasons our campus and city is so green is because of people like Erin! We try to keep a good balance of rock and road here in Richmond and it pays off because our city is gorgeous. Thanks Erin! :)
