VCU classes will not be held to observe Reading Days

Here at VCU, our students are in the classroom and out in the community learning, building relationships, and making change. However, everyone knows the value of 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 in order to prepare for midterm exams. University offices and departments are still operating on a regular schedule and classes will resume on Monday.
