Here at VCU, our students are in the classroom and out in the community learning, building relationships, and making change. However, every fantastic person knows the value of much-deserved, needed rest and recuperation! On Thursday, October 20, 2016 and Friday, October 21, 2016, VCU classes will not be held so that students can take a short break from their busy class schedules, relax and prepare for midterm exams. University offices and departments are still operating on a regular schedule and classes will resume on Monday.
Prospective Rams, we would like to welcome you to our Open House on October 29, 2016. This experience will help you to see what VCU has to offer and get a sense of the campus life. If you would like to join us, please register today!
A full schedule of the events for the day will be available at the VCU Siegel Center upon arrival and check in will begin at 7:30 am until 8:30 am.
We hope you will join us at our Open House. If you can’t join us for Open House, we hope that you’ll consider visiting campus for one of our daily information sessions and campus tours.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
