RAM CAMP is an immersive weeklong on-campus leadership experience that connects incoming freshmen to VCU traditions, campus resources and fellow Rams through:

  • Large and small group team-building challenges. Whether it’s dodgeball versus the VCU Campus Police or coming up with your own “team handshake” students will connect and form relationships with a diverse group of upperclassmen student leaders, faculty and staff.
  • Giving back to the community through service projects like the James River Clean-up.
  • Gaining early access to a wide array of campus resources like the Commons, student clubs and organizations and recreational sports.
  • Becoming personal friends with VCU’s own Rodney the Ram.
  • Exclusive access to outside guest speakers.
  • Touring and learning the campus before your peers.
  • Kick-starting your VCU apparel collection with free fan gear.
  • Moving in a week before everyone else.
