Vcu.edu Mobile Speed: 55/100

Quick overview:
Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content
Your page has 6 blocking script resources and 3 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
Remove render-blocking JavaScript:
http://www.vcu.edu/assets-vcuhp/js/vendor/modernizr.custom.js
...
Optimize CSS Delivery of the following:
http://www.vcu.edu/assets-vcuhp/css/homepage.vcu.min.css?100615
...
Leverage browser caching
Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.
Leverage browser caching for the following cacheable resources:
http://news.vcu.edu/image/9569/86x57 (expiration not specified)
...
Enable compression
Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.
Enable compression for the following resources to reduce their transfer size by 154.6KiB (72% reduction).
Compressing http://www.vcu.edu/assets-vcuhp/js/plugins.vcu.min.js could save 79.2KiB (69% reduction).
...
Prioritize visible content
Your page requires additional network round trips to render the above-the-fold content. For best performance, reduce the amount of HTML needed to render above-the-fold content.
The entire HTML response was not sufficient to render the above-the-fold content. This usually indicates that additional resources, loaded after HTML parsing, were required to render above-the-fold content. Prioritize visible content that is needed for rendering above-the-fold by including it directly in the HTML response.
Only about 7% of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the full HTML response.
Minify JavaScript
Compacting JavaScript code can save many bytes of data and speed up downloading, parsing, and execution time.
Minify JavaScript for the following resources to reduce their size by 27.7KiB (45% reduction).
Minifying http://www.vcu.edu/assets-vcuhp/js/home.vcu.dev.js could save 22.6KiB (50% reduction).
...

Optimize the following images to reduce their size by 15.4KiB (72% reduction).
Losslessly compressing http://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/2538311519/66ha2x62xv1fivyfowiw_normal.jpeg could save 5.8KiB (82% reduction).
...
