Our time. Right now.
What began as Shaka Smart's spontaneous expression of pride in his world-shocking Rams still resonates in every department at VCU. In the arts, science, engineering, health and beyond, see how it continues to be "Our time. Right now."

Our time. Right now.

Set to the beat of real-world rhythms, VCU hums with an energy all its own. A passion for discovery flows throughout our vibrant urban campus, from dedicated researchers exploring the next generation of cancer treatment to the excitement surrounding the da Vinci Center for Innovation. It's all about breaking down walls, defying expectations, being more inclusive than exclusive. And, yes, it's about the gritty band of Rams who tore the nation's Final Four brackets to shreds. This is where being community minded is coupled with a global consciousness, where you'll find both a microelectronics cleanroom and paint-splattered studios. Every day at VCU is another opportunity to be seized, a spirit reflected in the impressive record of accomplishments by our students, faculty and alumni. That's why our rallying cry isn't rooted in the distant past. It's one that guides us to the future: Our time. Right now.
