What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is great here. I just finished my freshman year in the Corps of Cadets and I will just say I like it about as much as any freshman can. Even only being here for about a year I have learned a lot about leadership and what it means to be a leader. I am in Band Company and get to attend all of the football games and perform in the pregame shows, which is really fun. The academics are challenging, but I can always find help when I need it. Overall this is a great place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is a welcoming and safe place that I am extremely happy to call home. The people here in Blacksburg are very friendly and go out of their way to help others in need. We are a tight knit community that also likes to give back to the area around the campus instead of just focusing on ourselves. In the classroom, students are always engaged in learning new material. They are focused on what the professors have to say and are eager to better themselves. The professors always have plenty of office hours where students can come in and get help with their work. If there are any concerns about the classes, the professors will get back to you in a timely manor so the issue can be resolved. Besides the community and academics, the food on and off campus is delicious and if you're not careful with your money, you will find yourself running out of dining dollars quickly. Athletics at Virginia Tech is a big part of the community. People come from all around the country just to check out a football or basketball game. When Enter Sandman comes on in Lane stadium or Cassell Coliseum, everyone gets on their feet to get the games started. Overall, Virginia Tech is an amazing place that I would recommend anyone looking to further their education to come and join the Hokie Nation!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Choosing to go to school at Virginia Tech was the greatest decision I've ever made. Here at Virginia Tech I have met some of my closest friends and already made some of my greatest memories. What really drew me to come to school here was how genuinely nice all the people seemed, as well as how beautiful the campus is. Since coming here, I have received an education beyond what I imagined. The professors here are tremendous, and all will make time to help you, even outside of their office hours. Classes vary in size, however, you can often find the class you want in the size you want, not just in one size. Aside from academics, there is plenty to do around and on campus. Whatever you're into, I'm sure there is a club or group for it here, which makes it easy to get involved. One other thing to note, is that we have the greatest food in the country. Before coming to Tech, this was something I did not think much of, but when I sit down to eat a steak and see my friends at another school eating a sloppy joe, it sure is nice. Overall, what really makes me love Tech is the perfect balance between the social/fun side of college, and the academics side.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is home! I was hesitant about such a large campus at first but now I know this is where I belong! There are so many opportunities on campus and off for people to engage in from sports to clubs to Greek Life. For such a big campus, there is something about it that makes you feel like a close-knit family. On Saturdays in the fall you will find most of the campus in Lane Stadium cheering on the football team. On warm days in the spring hundreds of students hit the drill field and take advantage of the beautiful weather from playing games to homework under the trees. Sometimes big colleges are not for everyone but if you are like me and don't quite know what is a good fit for you, take a leap of faith right into our open, maroon, and orange arms. I am positive you will find your second home here. Go Hokies!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall the school is a wonderful learning environment. I am always discovering new things and I find myself constantly asking questions. However, I have had more than a few professors who were not the best at teaching a class. They are certainly knowledgeable about the subject, but their methods seem unruly and haphazard. However, I can always find someone to talk to about these issues and they are almost always resolved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school with lots to do. They have a strong Corps of Cadets for those interested in the military or just the leadership training offered by a military program. There is much diversity among the student body and professors provide help in seeking internships, etc. if you just look for it. Hokie nation is strong and spread throughout the globe!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love t! It is a wonderful place to learn and live away from home. I am involved in a sorority and multiple clubs through the school. I came from a small high school, but Tech has made my experience in such a big school easy and comforting. I feel completely comfortable and happy to call this place my home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is a unique, excellent campus. Hokie Stone covers our buildings and it's something we're proud of. The Hokie is our unique mascot that we are proud to wear and love to see around. You'll often see the Hokie bird at events or even at the library to cheer studying students up. The academic buildings are up to date for the most part and the professors are all available to help whenever, for the most part. The dorms are nice, I got one of the nicer dorms on campus so I'm lucky. The food on campus is ranked number one nationally and consistently. GO HOKIES!
