i'm finishing community college here in georgia next semester and have put in an application for VCU.  i hear their arts/design program is wonderful.  anyway, i'd love to hear more about the school from anyone who's in the know, preferably current student or alumni.  thanks.

I'm a sophomore craft student here at VCU. Will you be a craft student? They have amazing programs here, and countless oportunities. Its definetly an awesome art school.

I know I'm a day late and a dollar short but I'm a second year VCU student -- sculpture major but thinking I might switch that to a minor or take a double major with crafts.  Love the professors I've dealt with so far and the campus has grown on me a bit to tell the truth.

Good luck to you in the future Smiley

i went to a school for undergrad that was basically the antithesis of VCU, so it was a bit of a culture shock, but you get used to it.  i'm in grad school there for art history, and i have had classes with some of the studio grad students and they all have good things to say about the department.  i think howard risatti used to be head of the crafts department but retired last semester, but i had a few classes with him and he was incredibly brilliant and really nice.  as far as the general arts community in richmond goes, i think its fantastic, loads of galleries and events like first fridays and the main street art walk give everyone a chance to show their work and they serve as a great place for networking.  also things like the bizarre market sponsored by chop suey books is a great place to sell your stuff and get your name out there.  and a lot of restaurants and bars around here have places to display local work. 

the campus is a bit disjointed and sort of in the middle of the city but if you don't have to deal with parking, the experience would probably be a lot more enjoyable.  overall, its a great art school, inspired professors and i have seen some real talent coming from the art department. 

anyway, hope this helped, good luck!

I am an alumna of the VCU Fashion design program. I loved the Uni so much I know work here as an advisor within the College of Humanities and Science. I know different direction from my design background  Undecided but I don't regret my ed. Grin I am currently starting a small business of my own to feed my creative side. Let me know if you have any questions. I can get you answers or if I can't I'll put you in touch with the people who can.
