Rotaract of VCU
Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Rotaract was organized in 2009 and is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Richmond. Bi-weekly meetings take place on the VCU campus from August to May. The club has been active in Polio Plus, Byrd Park Cleanup, and Meals on Wheels campaigns in the fall and Project WARM and the Rotary District 7600 RYLA Conference in February.

President - Prutha Patel: I am a sophomore at VCU studying Biochemistry on the Pre-Medicine Track and in the Honors College. I am from a very small town called Front Royal. I was very lucky to have gotten introduced to Interact in 7th grade but did not get too involved until 8th grade when I was honored to be able to go to one of their monthly Luncheons with my advisor. My advisor retired and we got another very dedicated Rotary member as our advisor. I was very involved, got to attend RYLA, and was Vice-President. She then got diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer during my senior year and unfortunately, she passed away. I will never forget all that she did for us and the club. I want to follow her footsteps and never forget the opportunities Interact, Rotaract, and Rotary have given me. When SOVO fair at VCU came around, I was determined to find Rotaract and here I am!
