VU has blessed me by bringing me into a community of not only future actors but future scientists and future politicians who believe that God is the one true savior.

They have done a great job with the growing diversity on campus and I truly feel at home. I got involved with Black Student Union and formed so many lifelong friendships. I'm also involved in Student Leadership and it’s cool for me to not only be behind the scenes of the major events and conversations that take place on campus, but to be mentored and poured into by the staff.
