Mesh Media is a division of the VCU Student Media Center. It is a network of student-run, multimedia, journalistic websites that cover specific aspects of VCU and Richmond culture.
In the fall of 2009, six freshmen started a VCU Student Media Center pilot program in order to add video news and commentary to student-run coverage of VCU sports. After Rams Review launched, Shafer Bird began in the spring of 2010 to cover campus dining and Richmond cuisine. The group added coverage of the Richmond music scene with The Horn RVA in the summer of 2010.
The websites unified to form Mesh Media, which became an official division of the VCU Student Media Center in the spring of 2011. The newest addition to the network, River City Fashion Uprising, started in the spring of 2012 covering Richmond’s fashion culture.
