Because VCU is located in Richmond, there are many choices for students when planning evening activities. From going to parties on campus or to bars and clubs throughout the city, there is something for everyone. Bars and clubs are usually limited to students age 21 and up. If you’re under 21, you can always go to Mars Bar or Aladdin’s. Walking is usually your best bet when going to parties around campus, and if you’re leaving campus, having a designated driver is a must if you plan on drinking. The school offers an escort service, but students find themselves waiting a lot longer than it would have taken them to find another alternative.
VCU occasionally hosts concerts from time to time but not often. The Richmond Coliseum is located about 5 minutes
away from campus by car, and that’s where the bigger name acts perform. Tickets to these events are generally
expensive, but students get excited when they can see a big-name act so close to campus. Richmond is also home to
an amazing venue called Toad’s Place, which features both nationally touring artists and local acts. Tickets at Toad’s
Place are less expensive than concerts at the Coliseum, and the atmosphere is so much better.
