VCU classes will not be held in observance in Reading Days

by Ian Wheeler, Graduate Student Assistant

Here at VCU, our students are in the classroom and out in the community learning, building relationships, and making change. However, every exceptional leader knows the value of much-deserved rest and recuperation! On Thursday, October 16, 2014 and Friday, October 17, 2014, 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.

Open House is around the corner!

Prospective Rams, want to know learn more about VCU’s outstanding academic programs and get a sense of student life on campus? Consider joining us for one of our Fall Open Houses on Saturday, October 11 or Nov. 1, 2014 — register online today!

After you check-in for the event, you’ll be able to take a walk through the Student Information Resource Fair in the Stuart C. Siegel Center and get information about many of our services and resources on campus including Dining Services, Financial Aid, Parking and Transportation, Recreational Sports, Residential Life and Housing, VCU Police and VCU Libraries.

Throughout the day you’ll be able to engage with faculty and staff from your academic department of interest, tour the Monroe Park Campus (featuring a residence hall), tour the Cary Street Gym, dine in our Shafer Court Dining Center and more!
