The Education of Your Life!

HIgh Above the Appomatox


In the past some Historically Black Colleges and Universities have gotten a bad “wrap” for not being customer service friendly to students. Virginia State University quickly dispatches that myth. University personnel are eager and quick to assist students. Employees working in the registrar’s office, financial aid office and residence life are some of the best employees on campus.

Residence Life, under the direction of Dr. LaVerne Briggs has adopted the phrase “Building community one floor at a time.” Residence Life personnel are committed to providing not only safe and healthy environments, but living and learning centers as well. Residence Educators, Resident Assistants and Graduate Assistants work together to provide programs on a variety of subjects to residents.

Parents can rest assured that their child is well taken care of. There are programs and forums in the residence halls on everything from substance abuse awareness to movie nights! Students residing in the residence halls are in excellent shape as they pursue their respective degrees. Residence halls are equipped with high speed internet connections and cable tv connections in every room. In addition there is a full staff to help with academic advising, mediation and counseling.

If you’re looking for an HBCU that’s at the top of their game, turning out future leaders and gives quality customer service, then look no further. Virginia State University is the place.
