"As an adult coming from the workforce, I had my doubts when deciding to go back and pursue a Bachelor's degree. VCU dispelled all of these thoughts immediately with their friendly, professional, and inclusive faculty and programs. This university provides not just a stellar community, it provides the right environment for students from a vast range of backgrounds to flourish." - Jason Khan '24
