THE RAM GUIDE ESSENTIALS FOR MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR VCU EXPERIENCE


What is the Ram Guide? The Ram Guide is a living piece of VCU history. It combines the rich history of Virginia Commonwealth University with your personal legacy. Each member of the VCU community will have individual experiences that reflect our diverse makeup. This guide, however, contains meaningful suggestions intended to help you make the most of your time here.


How should I use the Ram Guide? The Ram Guide provides brief – albeit important – information about VCU’s beginning and history. In addition, the Ram Guide offers information about events and traditions that have turned VCU people, books and buildings into a diverse, engaged and thriving community.


Must Do at VCU To encourage participation and ensure the ongoing legacy of VCU events and traditions, the INSERT OFFICE supports Must Do at VCU.
