Senior, communication arts major with a minor in creative writing
For Richmond-area resident Rob Gibsun, the close proximity of VCU proved to be a draw when he looked at colleges.
“Coming to the city and VCU always fascinated me,” he said, “because there is always something going on and always something to do.”
As a budding artist, VCU’s national ranking and stellar reputation sold him.
“It’s the No. 1 public [graduate] art school in the nation,” he said. “That’s all I needed to hear.”
The city’s vibrant cultural and art scene sealed the deal.
“There’s an energy here at VCU and in Richmond that is growing,” he said. “And I’m happy to be a part of that.”
