VCU Road Scholar in Richmond

Richmond Site Coordinator: Catherine D. Dodson

Current Programs

Some cities pave over their past, but the streets of Richmond are constant reminders of its history and America´s history. With its Jefferson-designed Capitol, antebellum mansions, grand boulevards and legacy of Civil War sites, Richmond weaves yesteryear with today in delightful fashion. The city also boasts white-water rafting, Fortune 500s, NASA´s medical tech facility, lavish gardens, cozy bistros, the largest Victorian district in the US, and significant art and history museums.

VCU Road Scholar participants stay at the Crowne Plaza Richmond Downtown. This charming hotel in the central city River District features spacious rooms, a business center, a fitness room, free parking, and it is walking distance from the Tredegar Ironworks and the Canal River Walk.
