What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hokie Nation: no kidding. It's like 'Six Degrees From Kevin Bacon' but with Hokies. I've been here three now and it is safe the say that I made the right choice in school (and I was really worried about back in Ye Olde High School Years). The classes, aside from Calculus, are amazing. Tech has anything and everything I could ever want to study and then some. Into languages? Got 'em. Into Animal Science? Choose from aquaculture to bovine studies, to equine care. More of a math whiz? Infinite options. Tech even has a Meteorology major - the only one in Virginia as of yet (I didn't find that out until last December). The professors are brilliant too - most are more than willing to work with students one-on-one are incredibly passionate about what they teach. There's even a professor here who's a superhero, aka The Plaid Avenger! The food is great too - I know, college food, but this is seriously the best (especially at Turner Hall). I can practically get whatever whenever. Let's Go Hokies!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Virginia Tech, I can't imagine not being a part of this school. The campus is nestled between two mountains and it is beautiful. There is always something to do around campus regardless of your interests. The Greek life is huge, but not a must to have an enjoyable college experience. If you love football then Virginia Tech is for you. Attending a game at Lane Stadium is an experience you will never forget. The school spirit is unbelievable and when the band plays "Enter Sandman" the entire stadium shakes from the students jumping. My classes have been challanging but great. You can tell the professors are passionate about what they teach and care about student success. Virginia Tech "is home" and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University or as we call it Virginia Tech, is a great school to be your guide to your future. It has everything you want to get involve with, academics or clubs. One of the best dinning services on campus making students actually want to eat there, school spirit, a great student body as well as professors and excellent facilities. We call it Home because it actually becomes your home, the people around you are friends you are going to have forever, the classes you take are gonna push you further and there is nothing like the changing of seasons and the view of the blue ridge mountains. Virginia Tech is Home and I'm so glad I don't study anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University is the model of what colleges should strive for. There is no area in which the college lacks or falls short. The students are immersed in a community created by the students, faculty, and town of Blacksburg. The quality of life is like no other as students find themselves surrounded by excellent housing options and outstanding dining locations. As a student at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, I feel that the college goes above and beyond to make my time spent there to be as opportunistic and incredible as it can be. Those who have served and continue to serve at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University have discovered the best methods of developing both a tremendous academic experience and thriving student atmosphere. By having the student in mind when developing forward through greater collegiate programs and exciting opportunities for student living, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University continues to become an awe-inspiring college as students are generously provided with astounding opportunities in both areas of educational culture and lifestyle.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is no place I'd rather be than Virginia Tech. It is a phenomenal school with innumerable academic and social opportunities. Not only am I receiving an outstanding education, but I also feel as though I am part of a greater whole. The sense of community at Virginia Tech and the pride students feel for the school creates an atmosphere of acceptance and enthusiasm. I have met so many fantastic people, people who I am glad to call mentors, peers, and friends. I have forged numerous friendships with people from all over the country and around the world. Despite coming from drastically different upbringings, here we all share a common ground. Here we are family, a part of the Hokie Nation. Even after graduation, the intense sense of school spirit does not fade. There have been countless occasions where I have met a Virginia Tech alumni by chance and we shared a moment of excitement, as though we were old friends reuniting. For me and many others, Virginia Tech is my home away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I am proud to say that I attend a university where its motto, Ut Protism, meaning "that I may serve", is held highly and carried out by students and faculty alike. Following this motto, the members of the university form a community, in which everyone encourages and supports one another, while also taking the time to help those in need in any way that they can. Because this motto is upheld with high regard, students are able to receive the best education from professors, form strong friendships among fellow students, and receive excellent services around campus. Because of this motto, it makes me want to be more involved with my community and finding more ways how I can help those in need, and see what I can do to assist them. Because of this motto, I am proud to say that I attend Virginia Tech, and I am proud to call myself a Hokie.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first started, I still did not feel a deep connection to Virginia Tech. However, one morning I was walking across the drill field to my 8 am chemistry lab and realized how much I love my school. The people are great and friendly, the good is tasty, and the classes are interesting but challenging. I would highly recommend Virginia Tech to anyone I know.
