We have a large, dynamic academic body that reaches new highs every year. With a prime location off several major interstates and within the heart of the capital city, VCU has arguably one of the most valuable locations for an academic establishment in the state.
Getting the word out about HIV
Thanks (to Mr. Hethcoat) for the very well written article “A Boy, a Girl and a Virus” (Oct.9). I understand that students have schedule conflicts and can’t get to all of the great programming that is offered at VCU, so your article allowed people to get some important information even if they couldn’t attend.
The student Senate elections are currently underway. Voting will take place online at www.vcusga.com starting 8 a.m. Oct. 10 and ending 5 p.m. Oct 12. We encourage everyone to vote and wish the best of luck to all the candidates.
Now let me pose a question: Have you ever felt like VCU took your money and then left you to wander around the bustling, academic labyrinth all alone?

Watch for red flags
This month, the Red Flag Campaign makes its debut on our campus. This campaign marks the first statewide public awareness effort aimed at stopping dating violence on college campuses in Virginia. While it’s true that dating violence is a complex problem that cannot be solved by a poster campaign, the message of the campaign is that there are countless steps we can take in our daily lives to stop someone who is being abusive or to help someone who is being victimized.
