Richmond and the VCU area are constantly bustling with activity. Here's what's coming up!

03/19/2024

📚 Midterm Grades, Pass/Fail, and Fall Course Registration Update! 📝

It's that time of the semester! Midterm grades are in on eServices, helping students track their progress and make necessary adjustments to succeed in their courses. Encourage your student to utilize VCU's FREE academic support resources like tutoring and coaching to enhance their learning experience and boost their grades.

If your student is worried about their grades, advise them to consult their academic advisor before March 29th about the Pass/Fail option. This can be a great way to earn course credits without impacting their GPA. Also, remind them to update their DegreeWorks Plan and meet with their advisor for fall course registration starting at the end of March. Let's set them up for success! 🌟

We're here to support your student every step of the way. Feel free to contact [email protected] with any queries. Let's make this semester a successful one together! 🎓

Flash Back Friday! 🎉

We had an amazing time at our Herd Hugs and High Fives event and it wouldn't have been possible without your presence!

We want to extend our gratitude to all those who attended and made it a memorable experience.

A special thanks to the VCU Family Council for spearheading the effort and for their dedication in making it happen.

We also want to offer a heartfelt thank you to our volunteer moms who were not part of the council but still contributed their time and energy to make it a success.

Thank you for being a part of our RAMily and we couldn't have done it without you!
