What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is a wonderfully constructed school and I would not rather be anywhere else. The food is top class, the academics are amazing, the campus is beautiful, and everyone feels accepted into the community. Additionally, there are a plethora of opportunities for all to act upon, which is great for community involvement.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attended Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design and Merchandising Management. At Virginia Tech I was able to earn a highly regarded degree and benefit from a real college experience.  I was familiar with the Virginia Tech campus from attending summer camps there as a child and by the time I was thinking about my college future,  couldn’t picture my higher education years anywhere but Blacksburg, Virginia. I joined 30,000 fellow classmates to became a Hokie and an honorary member of the Hokie Nation; students, alumni, and fans across the globe who are outfitted in orange and maroon come game day. In a school this size, communities within the larger University are the key to creating a sense of belonging, whether it be within a club, sport, greek life, student government, or major.  The design program itself was small and offered an exceptional student to teacher ratio with talented instructors, some of whom continue to provide me with mentorship to this day. The courses tended to focus on technical aspects of design rather than artistic expression. The program also offered incredible study abroad and internship options worldwide. I walked away from Virginia Tech with more than a diploma. I left with a home, lifelong best friends, and more great memories and experiences that can be relayed in 250 words. I am proud of my alma mater and feel lucky to be part of the Hokie Nation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

You walk around Virginia Tech and the only word that you can use to describe it is home. It is a place where you automatically feel safe, at peace, and wanted. Virginia Tech has a way of making you feel like you are meant to be there, even if at times you are unsure. Aspiring to be a registered nurse, it was hard for me to realize that the school I am attending and love doesn't have the exact program that I need. What I realized, however, is that Virginia Tech offers many degrees that will put me on track to follow my dream. The majors to choose from are endless and so are the opportunities to make you stand out compared to other students resume's when applying to another school. Along with the academics, Virginia Tech offers a tremendous amount of extracurricular activities to ensure that everyone can get involved in something they are passionate about. If for some reason there isn't a club you wish to join, its simple to start one of your own. The pride that every student has attending the school is like no other. Whether you are talking to a current student on campus or alumni you meet at work, they will all say the same thing. Virginia Tech is a school that can shape someone into the person they aspire to be. It is a school that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime. It is a school you will forever call home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I completed one year at Virginia Tech and I can say that I had a great time here on campus. I was apart of the Corps of Cadet which is like an ROTC program that helps build future leaders in the military and the private sector and it like one big family. Also even though its a predominately white school they have culture centers for minors which I am a part of. Finally, football season is when the school is alive and its so much fun going to the games

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech lives for school pride. It's contagious and most people that go here will find themselves advocating for the school. We're known for having one of the best campus food and having a farm nearby means most ingredients are fresh. Although it's a small town, there's numerous shops to visit downtown and plenty of hiking trails to go on nearby if you're looking for something to do during weekends. Overall, the campus is easy to navigate within a week of attending and has numerous activities and facilities to occupy your time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've been at Virginia Tech now for a little over two years. I've experienced all sorts of professors from most of the departments here. I've dealt with the general population of students as well as the members of the Corps of Cadets. I can say that Virginia Tech is an amazing school and I'd rank it highly against schools across the nation. There are only a few negative things that I'd say about Virginia Tech. For example, finals' week sucks because everyone gets busy and there's hardly enough time to do eat let alone sleep. However, that's the reality of most colleges and it's just something everyone pursuing a higher education will have to deal with. Another example is that it gets very cold during the winter time. The temperature will level out just around the twenty-degree mark for about twelve weeks. But overall the amazing community, epic sports, and impeccable education you're receiving, immensely outweigh the negative aspects of this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are large class sizes, which can be bothersome to some people, and the freshman get the older, less maintained dorm rooms, however the school is located in a college town, where there are plenty of options for college student jobs, and opportunities for outside of college residential spaces (affordable housing).

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!
