My son is a freshman in the first year foundation program. He has worked hard, skipping meals and sleep more than once to meet demanding deadlines. I think the classes are tough, but good. I see that he has learned to hone some of his weaker skills. My frustration is that the school is not transparent regarding their process for... More

Loved the school, disliked the crime issues, which the school does a great job of protecting the students from, but still.

I am biased. I have two art degrees from VCU School of the Arts. It's competitive and challenging in all the right ways. Just as is any good school.

What talent! VCU really is one of the top art schools in the country based on the work created by talented young people-- from sculptors, dancers, painters, graphic designers, actors, and musicians. It was a treat to see them perform!

VCU School of the ARTS and the university as a whole recognize, encourage, and display creativity. The art school is consistently ranked among the best in the country. The urban campus is lively, and there are always, always cultural happenings both at the university and within the city of Richmond. While the School of the ARTS is renowned, there are... More
