Preview Day highlights

Preview Day is an opportunity for accepted students to spend time on campus and get a preview of life as a VCU Ram. Even if you’ve visited campus before - Preview Day will offer a unique immersive experience for you and your family. During Preview Day you will:

  • Spend the morning with your academic area of interest
  • Tour a room in one of our residence halls 
  • If you haven’t already, accept your offer of admission on-site and get early access to register for orientation
  • Connect with other admitted students and their families 
  • Celebrate this amazing milestone - we can’t wait to welcome you to the VCU RAMily!
