Protecting your identity

We love seeing the social media posts of our new Rams with their acceptance packages, but want you to be safe when posting and protect your identity. Here are a few things to consider before you post:

  1. Cover up your home address.
  2. Don’t post your VCU Student Identification Number (V-number). Protect your V-number much like you would your Social Security number.
  3. Once you obtain your VCU student ID card (typically received during New Student Orientation), do not post your VCUCard number.

Stay safe and happy posting!
