Event Information:

RVA NOW is excited to announce the first-ever College Jam, an event inviting local college students – from VCU, UR, VSU, VUU, RMC, Tyler, and Reynolds – to explore what RVA has to offer and connect with area employers in a fun and casual way.

Are you wondering what Richmond has to offer after graduation? Not sure where to start looking for jobs or internships around the region? Looking to make meaningful connections with people who’ve been in your shoes not too long ago?

At College Jam, you’ll find a unique experience featuring entertainment, activities, and most importantly, career connections. But leave your resume at home: this event is all about exploring and experiencing what it’s really like to live and work in RVA. Come ready to hear from young professionals about why they chose RVA, what makes their neighborhood unique, and how they found their career pathways.

But that’s not all! We’re planning even more activities and incentives to make this an afternoon to remember, including:

  • Free professional headshots to spiff up your LinkedIn profile
  • A photobooth to celebrate your life in RVA
  • A raffle of (drumroll please) $500 as a prize for making the most of this event
  • Music, cold drinks, and snacks to complete the vibe at Richmond’s coolest venue

The best part? It’s FREE and open to all students so bring your crew and we’ll see you there!

This year’s College Jam will take place on Wednesday, September 29, from 3 – 6 p.m. in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts sculpture garden. Register to let us know you’ll be there, and be sure to bring your student ID to access giveaways and food!
