Glynis Boyd Hughes — A Successful Return

April 15, 2019

In 2017, two decades after she left VCU, Glynis Boyd Hughes returned in search of that missing something. Her love of literature had never gone away, and she decided to embrace that, switching her major to English and later adding a minor in gender, sexuality and women’s studies in the College of Humanities and Sciences.

Since her return to school Glynis has not looked back. In fact, Hughes believes she is only beginning to reach her academic potential. She plans to pursue a Ph.D. after she finishes at VCU (her target graduation date is May 2020) and is considering a career in student affairs, with aspirations to become a dean. She started a new student organization called Retro Rams for nontraditional students, and she’s worked through the organization to help students have the best VCU experience possible, from providing academic support to forming connections with other nontraditional students.

British Virginia

British Virginia logo: simply the words

British Virginia is a VCU-hosted series of scholarly editions of documents touching on the colony. These texts range from the 16th and 17th-century literature of English exploration to the 19th-century writing of loyalists and other Virginians who continued to identify with Great Britain. Editions appear principally in digital form, freely downloadable.
