What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is a fantastic University! I am proud to say I am a student here and there is always something for everyone! We are huge into our varsity sports, but if that isn't your thing, we have an amazing art department as well as 1000+ clubs! I am also apart of fun intramural recreational sports such as Innertube Water Polo!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall the school tries to be inclusive, but it still lacks in the department. The lack of diversity can make a minority feel like they're out of place at some times. There isn't a balance between male and female here, so most of the classes are male dominated. I personally feel that the school should become more diverse with who they accept into the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University is a great school to attend for multiple reasons, the environment is great and beautiful, the students and faculty are very nice, and the food is always good. Everyone loves the sporting events and are all true fans. I can't wait to be a Hokie next year!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a beautiful campus with amazing food and people. There are plenty of people with similar interests so anyone can make friends. It's very safe, as we have our own police force patrolling and checking up with students. It's a great place to go to school as it challenges you and encourages you to learn.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Virginia Tech. I could not imagine my last four years begging anywhere else. Tech is a family school for me, so I always knew I would be attending Tech. I love how much we love Football games and how when anyone says “Let’s Go” someone will always reply “HOKIES”. Tech really is home and is the best school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely LOVE Virginia Tech. It has the best people, food, campus, and community. Everyone is proud to be a Hokie and always support and look out for one another. Although I love the athletic teams at my school, there are countless other opportunities in all interest areas where students can get involved! If I haven't already mentioned the food, THE FOOD AT VIRGINIA TECH IS UNMATCHED. On-campus housing is getting better. Slowly but surely renovations are happening to older dorms, bur off-campus housing is plentiful and pristine. Professors are spirited, passionate, and dedicated. Student resources are abundant and easily accessible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is a great place to learn. Apart from academics, the culture expands throughout the Blacksburg community. The 'Ut Prosim' motto extends throughout the entire campus and stduent body. It truly feels like home. It is a great place to study!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is honestly a great school. I do not regret coming her at all. I've gotten myself into so many organization and extra curricular activities that I love so much and has led me to meeting some of the best people. I have met so many amazing people at Tech and they have made my experiences here the best. With every school comes their cons, and one is that Virginia Tech is not as diverse as I would like it to be. I do see efforts of the administrators implementing diversity programs and accepting more minorities and people of color.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Because Virginia Tech is such a large school, there are niches for everyone. Finding a place at Tech can be taxing in the beginning but as you find your way, you find that the school feels smaller, more intimate, and attuned to your needs. I do think that VT could be more politically active, but being in a rural area tends to separate us from the intensity of current events. However, Tech's location doesn't hinder the breadth of VT's school spirit, which can be felt in its dedicated alumnus and the immediate sense of kin we feel when meeting fellow hokies. We hold doors open for each other, and won't hesitate to help a hokie out. The food selection is great, but with great food comes higher prices. To save money I like to bring my lunches from home. Additionally, I live off campus (it is hard to find on campus housing past freshman year) and I either bus or bike to class. Both methods of transport are convenient and practical, the bus system is moderately reliable and very accessible. In my time here I have gotten involved with a number if different sports clubs, organizations, and local groups. Overall, your experience at Virginia Tech is what you make of it. If you put in the effort, you will reap the benefits. No hokie has the same experience, and that's the way it should be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is known for their motto "Ut Prosim" meaning That I May Serve. I have been at Virginia Tech for only a year but I have seen the University as a whole embrace that motto and use it in everything they do, including serving the Hokie and Blacksburg community and communities all over the world . When I first was applying to Virginia Tech, I was unsure whether I would fit in. I did not understand what a "Hokie " was. However, when I first stepped foot on the campus, I realized being a Hokie was not just a term that applied to students attending Virginia Tech. I noticed that being a Hokie was to embrace Ut Prosim and use that motto to drive everything you do for a greater purpose. Not only is the culture unique, the resources the university provides have proven to be incredibly resourceful. Virginia Tech has several programs that ensure the success of every single student. They have resources such as free tutoring services, Services for Students with Disabilities Department (SSD), substance abuse care programs, Cook Counseling Center, etc. I am a student who has a learning disability and the SSD department was a great help for getting me the help I needed to ensure I was able to have the same opportunities as the other students. Virginia Tech has become my second home and I truly believe it is an extraordinary university. GO HOKIES!!!
