As I begin my last year in college, I have been thinking more about my fate post-grad. Most of the people I know who have graduated, from VCU in particular, have had tremendous difficulty finding a career after they’ve graduated.
I have paid for every internship credit hour I have taken, outside of the financial cost of the credit hours: I bought office clothes, transportation, parking, printing materials for work when necessary. All of which are minor, but necessary incurred costs that I didn’t mind paying because it was part of the internship experience, necessary components and experiences in preparing for office work, in my case.
Beginning with the Spring 2014 graduates, VCU will survey alumni on their post-graduation activity in order to collect data which can provide incoming and future students knowledge of what to expect from their majors.
VCU’s nationally renowned art programs are no longer limited to just college students. Investigation Now, an art program sponsored by VCU, puts a focus on local 8th and 9th graders.
