I chose VCU because of the people. The residents act like one large family and have a good relationship with the faculty and administrators. The other great reason to stay at VCU is Richmond! Richmond has all the convenience of a large city (good food, music, arts, festivals, outdoor activities) but the feel of a small town (low cost of living, no traffic, friendly people)
