What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia tech is an incredible secondary institution which embodies familial values, academic success, and community involvement. Students and faculty live by the phrase "ut prosim" meaning that I may serve. This translates into students being involved greatly involved in the community and serving others in every way possible. For example, my Professor came into class one day talking about how a cadet had helped her carry a box from the Drillfield to her car. It was hot outside and she was struggling to get the box to her car when a cadet, right out of physical training and very exhausted, came over. He noticed that she was struggling with the box and volunteered to carry it to her car. Students at Virginia Tech live to serve others. Academic success is also very important, students are encouraged to do research on campus as well as engage in educational clubs outside of the classroom like the educational fraternities and living learning communities. Speaking from personal experience, I lived in the Curie living learning community and it was an incredible academic community to be a part of. Overall Virginia Tech is an amazing school which teaches its students to be excellent members of their community. On top of its academic excellence, great social scene, and wonderful food, Virginia Tech feels like home.

The campus in all inclusive, there is something for everyone. There are many things to get involved with whether its clubs, sororities, band, sports, academics or just friend groups. Virginia Tech practices Ut Prosim which is referring to community, community is big at Virginia Tech whether its for football games or charity or community support like relay for life for example most hokies practice community and civility throughout their college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have a very favorable opinion of Virginia Tech because of its wide variety of services, friendly and welcoming environment, and excellent academics. At Virginia Tech, there are numerous study spots that are perfect for completing any assignment, or studying for the upcoming exam. The professors are always willing to help and have frequent office hours where they are willing to talk about anything. Another very positive factor is that there are always activities and events happening around campus. Social organizations frequently have social events right outside the dorms and are welcoming to all students who wish to have fun, play games, meet new people and eat free food! Clubs also set up on the drillfield to promote their causes and service to others, the important motto of the school. There are always opportunities to participate in intramural sports, where you can compete against almost anyone on campus! Most importantly, the quality of education is very high, and professors are always there to help and make sure you succeed. Virginia Tech is well-rounded because of its focus on enhancing various aspects of life, which makes it an exciting place to attend school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is a place where students can thrive and find who they are. The diverse environment allows students to challenge their thoughts and grow into better people before they leave for the real world. Virginia Tech encourages everyone to get involved and help others both in the local area and on a broader scale. The academics are impressive, but it does not sacrifice a student's mental health. There is a reason Virginia Tech was voted to have some of the happiest students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is a great school academically. It's one of the best universities in Virginia. It's a HUGE school, and that makes it seem a little lonely. I find it to be a bit difficult to make friends. Also, Blacksburg is very empty. There isn't much to do around here, hence the amount of house parties. Greek life is pretty prevalent, nothing obnoxious though. The classes are great, at times difficult though. There's a mix between small and large classes. For on campus housing, I suggest staying in a suite style dorm. Traditional styles rooms are really small. The food is wonderful! 10/10! One thing about Tech, there isn't much diversity. Although most colleges don't have much, Tech may be less than average. Overall, it's a good school, but living in Blacksburg is a bit depressing at times and the social life here isn't the best.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University is a boisterous and lively university that encompasses a variety of people who are extremely diverse, and yet have at least one thing in common: they love their school. While the university is home to over 30,000 students, it's easy to feel like you are part of a close-knit community through the enormous amount of clubs and majors offered. The overall feeling of the school is loving, inclusive, and energetic on a daily basis, let alone on game day. I'm so thankful I chose to come to the vibrant and electric community that makes up Virginia Tech, and the relationships and networking I've made so far has given me no doubt I made the correct decision by pursuing my education at Virginia Tech for the next four year. You know what they say: This is Home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great University. I've enjoyed my classes to date as well as living on campus (food is incredible) and off campus (food is still incredible). I've made many new friends and have tried new things. There are all kinds of sports to participate in and events to go to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a senior, I have only been in 1 class with less than 100 people throughout my time at Virginia tech, and it wasn't even in my major. Biology professors could not care less about their students. Every advisor I have had has told me incorrect information and messed up my class planning for graduation. Campus housing is terrible. Nearly every available dime goes to the football program leaving the bare minimum for the students and academics.
