It does not snow in Norfolk often, I will have no delay commuting to school.

There is a wide variety of food types in the general vicinity. Everything from pizza and burgers to pasta and gyros.

Students drink moderately on the weekends, but nothing out of control. I have never heard or seen any of the students using illegal drugs.

Many Activities to Participate in – EVMS is located in Downtown Norfolk where there are museums, a pretty big shopping mall, Nauticus, and Town Point Park. Granby street is full of great restaurants and bars and a few art galleries are also nearby. The Tide, a rail that runs from EVMS to Newtown Road allows for convenient travel into and out of Downtown Norfolk.

Lots of diversity, both ethnic, cultural, economic, etc. Everyone works together. It's a very cooperative atmosphere, unlike many other medical schools.

Guys & Girls:
Very Laid Back – Considering everyone is in medical school/PA school, and you'd expect them to all be completely stressed out, everyone is very laid back and friendly!

Tons to Choose from! EVMS is located in downtown Norfolk (the closest thing to a metropolitan environment that you'll find in Hampton Roads). There are tons of places to eat and hang out!

There's a ton of new construction going on- a new student center with an awesome lounge, high tech classrooms, and a place to eat! The cadaver lab is big, and vented (hooray!). Facilities for clinical assignments are convenient- Norfolk General and CHKD are located on campus! The PA program has a ton of great facilities because they have access to the medical school's facilities.

I don't here of people doing drugs here, but alcohol is a definite positive. Not on campus, but outside of campus, that is what I hear students do most often.

There are no athletic facilities on campus or any teams. Students here do play a lot of sports together, and many do intramurals with students from Old Dominion University. ODU has an undergrad campus with a lot more facilities and students, and their football team is popular in this area. Also, EVMS is not too far from sporting powerhouses the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech. Most students at EVMS are either from Virginia, attended UVA or VTech or both. And these students are avid fans of their respective teams.

Health & Safety:
The campus itself is safe. There are security guards in every building, and ID's are required at all times. The campus police are very helpful, and they even have a service that can escort you home if you have to walk alone late at night. It's a small campus, and the people here are trustworthy generally. I don't think I've heard of theft or anything of the sort yet.
Since the campus is right next to 2 hospitals and a health clinic, the general public (i.e., patients) are around. But I don't think we've had any problems with that. Just something to keep in mind.

Community Service – I don't think I've ever seen a medical school that puts community service in the forefront. There is always something going on.

Good Overall – People here are generally nice and helpful. Staff almost always and most students are easy to get along with. The newest class is on the high-strung side, but they help each other. The school is pretty old and small, so the new renovations, while kind of annoying now, will make the school a much better place. It would be nice to have more facilities here.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
