Popcorn with Professors

It's no secret that student and faculty interactions can lead to positive outcomes: increased retention/persistence rates, academic achievement/performance, satisfaction with faculty, sense of belonging, and the list goes on! Our students tell us through their completion of the College Student Inventory and in daily conversations, getting to know their professors, advisors, counselors and college staff is important to them. 

Popcorn with Professors is designed for students and faculty to build connections and positive relationships beyond the classroom while enjoying popcorn and engaging in meaningful topics related to the VCU major maps: academic success, building social capital/networks, career exploration and development, persistence and determination, and getting connected to academic and social resources.
