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!

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.
