WHAT I LIKED

I think my university is an excellent fit for people who like small to medium size campuses and HBCU qualities. VSU provides excellent networking and scholarship opportunities for students. VSU offers significant events and parties for many to socialize. Most importantly provides an amazing HBCU experience for people of color to have great opportunities and great learning.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Be aware that it is an excellent school to socialize and party; however, students need to learn to prioritize studying and social life to gain the entire experience.
