When students are asked what three words most describe VCU, one of those words is almost always “diverse.” Students at VCU come from many different states, as well as more than 100 different countries. They may have different-colored skin and hair or be tall, short, fat, or thin. Students may be straight or gay and might practice a myriad of religions. Walking through campus is like walking through a rainbow. You can hear an array of accents across campus, and conversations can take a different tone based on personal beliefs and cultural values. Students appreciate the differences in each other and are fortunate to be able to go to a school that doesn’t hide what the real world offers.
VCU strives to appreciate and value racial and cultural diversity and to learn from the uniqueness of each person
and his or her customs and traditions. This ensures that all students are exposed to diverse ideas and perspectives, sounds, and food from the countries and cultures they represent. The diversity that surrounds VCU not only encourages students to open their hearts to the differences between people but also to the opportunities that a diverse learning environment can create. It is often said that two heads are better than one, so it makes sense to say that the more backgrounds and experiences that VCU students can offer one another, the more enriched their lives will become.
