Why VCU EM: As cliché as it sounds, the people here are like family. You won’t find a group that comes together better than the ones here. Wide variety in interests so you will always have someone to hang out with no matter what you’re into. Also, the program leadership really take interest in who you are as a person and what makes you happy in addition to providing great EM education.
Favorite thing to do in RVA: Outside activities (sports, river tubing, etc.) or hanging out at the breweries in the warmer months.
Best kept RVA secret: Great brunch places.
