Five reasons why you should be a VCUarts student!


Picture yourself at Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts, the #1 public art school in the nation (according to U.S. News and World Report)!

Here are our top 5 reasons you should apply to VCUarts today:

1. You’ll pay lower tuition at VCUarts than other top art schools in the country.
2. You can take classes outside of the arts–and even double major or minor in other areas of study–because VCUarts is part of a large research university with over 200 programs.
3. You’ll be welcome here. VCU’s diverse students are from all over the US, as well as 101 countries, and we have staff dedicated to making VCU a great place for our LGBTQ+ community.
4. You’ll live in one of the top cities for art, home to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, over 100 murals, monthly First Friday art events, and dozens of galleries and music venues.
5. You can explore the world through our numerous study abroad programs, including on our satellite campus in Qatar. You can earn credit in countries on six out of seven continents (like drawing in Italy!).

VCUarts is great, but we are missing something important: you! Apply now.
