"I came to VCU because we don’t just have diversity, we embrace it in every way, and it’s been the best decision of my life! Through the da Vinci Center, math department and Global Education Office, I’ve gone to professional and educational conferences around the country. The more time I spend on campus talking to people with different cultures, the more I’ve come to appreciate the values we all share."

"The first four months of medical English training really prepared us for the lectures at MCV. The lectures offered on the medical campus were so interesting and professional. The professors really connected with us, and opened opportunities for us to do research."

"Before I settled in the U.S., I lived on several continents and visited a great number of countries. When I arrived at VCU, the people in the Department of Pharmaceutics made me feel at home instantly. I have great colleagues, many friends and outstanding students. I love it here! Sometimes, you have to get out of your comfort zone, recognize what’s around you and realize your unique perspective, and at VCU I’ve been able to do that."
