Life after graduation

In May, VCU awarded professional, graduate and undergraduate degrees to students at our graduation ceremony held at the Richmond Coliseum. In all, VCU awarded more than 5,000 degrees. During the ceremony, Pamela El, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of the NBA, challenged these newest graduates to find their passion. Many students have already done that, including the eight students featured in this story. Read their stories to discover how their lives have transformed over time at VCU and how they plan to further their experiences as they embark on new journeys.
