RICHMOND, Va. — In October 2010 the VCU InSight website is moving from this WordPress site to a new home at Virginia Commonwealth University, http://insight.vcu.edu.
The move better uses available university technology resources and enables easier student access. The WordPress site includes 175 story posts since its January 2008 launch. It replaced a traditional website that was online since at least 2006.
VCU InSight is a 30-minute TV news show produced by undergraduate students in the VCU School of Mass Communications that airs monthly on WCVW-TV Richmond PBS. The show began in 2003.

RICHMOND, Va.–About 100 marchers helped rename a building on the Virginia Commonwealth University campus in mid-November and reaffirmed the legacy of the struggle for women to vote in Virginia and the United States.
The march began at the James Branch Cabell Library on VCU’s Monroe Park campus and ended at 919 W. Franklin St., the former home of Anne Clay Crenshaw. That same day in 1909–November 18–she and 18 other women created the Equal Suffrage League of Virginia, which later became the League of Women Voters of Virginia.
“Well, I’m thrilled because I think it’s important that we remember our history. And that’s one of the reasons I brought my daughter today,” said Dr. Catherine Ingrassia, executive associate dean for research and graduate affairs, VCU College of Humanities and Sciences.
