Make It Real

by Jason Rowe, Admissions Counselor
Virginia Commonwealth University recently unveiled its new marketing campaign, entitled “Make it Real.” If you’ve been to campus recently you may have noticed the new logo on our shuttle buses and on the VCU homepage. The phrase “Make it Real” was determined through extensive research conducted by VCU’s students, faculty, staff and alumni. “Make It Real” represents the university’s exceptional ability to relate the education that our students receive in the classroom to a hands-on, real world experience.
