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.
We usually complain about the high cost of tuition that rises every year and all of the things we’re not getting from our school. I, myself, have voiced many complaints about the way VCU handles finances. Except I realized that I often forget how much VCU does have to offer me.
Normal activity has resumed after a fire caused the Eighth Street parking deck on MCV’s campus to be closed down.
Being entrenched in the maelstrom of improvements that VCU has undergone over the past few years has left me less surprised by our rise than most other people, but I’m still impressed.
VCU Parking and Transportation increased the rates for day parking in their garages from $4 daily to a system that charges hourly, in addition to an increase in semester parking on campus for the academic year 2013-14.
