What is your overall opinion of this school?

As someone from Nova, I had heard about Tech my whole life, but being a first gen college student I did not know much about it other than the name. I had originally wanted to go out of state, but due to money, I stayed in Virginia, and going to Tech has been one of the best decisions, if not the best decision I have made in my entire life. It has exceeded my expectations for college, and I know is preparing me for life after, as almost everyone I know is employed after graduation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is overall a great school. Whether you are in to sports or are into reading a good book there is something for everyone at the school. The school is diverse enough to find a comfort place if you’re part of a minority group. The food is some of the best you can get (don’t tell my mom I said that). You can’t go wrong with attending Virginia Tech.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My three years at Virginia Tech were among the best of my life thus far. From the food, the campus, the football, and the overall culture, Virginia Tech will always be home. In addition to the wonderful three years on campus, my experience with the alumni community has been outstanding. I have lived in several states since graduation and have always found a Hokie community to be involved in. Go Hokies!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school has always given me a great positive opinion about it. Especially after being there and finding myself in the middle of so many opportunities. With the amount of organizations on campus there is a place where everyone can belong. The experience here has even exposed me to new things I would never have found on my own that I now love doing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is very populated, only Freshman are guaranteed housing. so that is a little difficult to handle since most off campus housing is more expensive. Very challenging courses, with highly educated professors. One weather phenomena is that is seems to be wet, cold, and rainy often. The campus gets muddy when riding a bike to all classes, which is a necessity.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech as a whole is a pretty amazing college. There are tons of great people, many classes to choose from, and the food is outstanding. However there are a few things that are not so great. 1. On campus housing is nearly impossible after freshman year. 2. It can be very difficult to get in classes that you need because of limited times and spaces available. 3. Tech is very stingy with handing out scholarships.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech truly lives up to the catchphrase "This is Home." When I was searching for a college I didn't feel the need to go visit, because I had my heart set on another school entirely. When I went to visit however, I was blown away by how wonderful the school was. The people were friendly, the food was amazing, and campus was absolutely gorgeous even in the rain! The second I got my acceptance letter I knew where I was going. When I arrived on campus in the fall I fell even more in love with the school. My hall-mates were friendly and engaging, and the coordinator for my Living Learning Community made us all right at home, right away. There were many opportunities to get involved with campus before classes even started, including a comedy show the first night on campus. Once classes started I was even more sure I had made the right choice. Even in my largest classes my professors took the time to make their student feel welcome, and I developed relationships with the people who would be educating me quickly. My advisor is incredibly helpful, and always responds to my emails in a timely manner, I feel like I can ask her anything about the school and she'll have a way to help me out. The professors I worked with all were passionate about their subjects, and it showed in their teaching. When it came to course load the work was rigorous, but not terrible. I learned a lot, but always had time to spend with my friends. Blacksburg itself is amazing as well. There's always something going on, whether it's on or off campus. From on campus shows only being $10 for students, to the local art house movie theatre showing films for $5 a ticket, you don't have to look far to find entertainment. My friends and I played a lot of frisbee, went to the movies almost every week, and walked campus whenever we got the chance, just to enjoy the weather and beautiful surroundings. We attended the weekly farmers market often, and always stopped by the vintage market to get some fun accessories or old magazines. Blacksburg truly has everything all in one place. I love my school and can't wait to go back for my sophomore year. The small school feel combined with the giant campus and opportunities that provides are invaluable and I wouldn't trade them for anything. Tech's academics are amazing, the sports are fantastic, the culture is super friendly and truly revolves around Ut Prosim. We have the happiest students in the nation, and the fittest campus, and being top ranked in food doesn't hurt either. If you're considering Virginia Tech, come down to Blacksburg and see what we're all about for yourself. I'm sure you won't be disappointed, and will be calling it home soon enough yourself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the campus lifestyle and ambiance of fellowship here at Virginia Tech. The architecture of all the building resemble castles to me and the people who inhabit said buildings are all friendly and helpful. The center piece of the campus is the drill field which acts as the bridge that connects the academic side to the residence side that both inhabit great dinning areas and other purposeful buildings. As multiple people inhabit this college student interaction is a focal point and is accompanied by the school motto, Ut Prosim, which assists the fellowship on the campus. This being said, there is numerous opportunities in terms of networking and gaining connections. On another note, the food here is great and is only bested by the academic opportunity here at Virginia Tech. The engineering program here is truly outstanding and pushes the students to over come obstacles and further develops the students character. Furthermore, the numerous clubs and organizations that one can get involved in is outstanding and I truly love it here. I wouldn't trade this for the world and I give this institution a 5 star. All of these great things about the institution previously stated, blend together in bless harmony to from a great college experience. Lastly, I do want to point out that besides the student the alumni and professors here also have a same friendly approach to them and are always there to help those who need it. whether through email or personal meetings help is always available for those who want it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

VT is a great school to receive an education from. Plenty of things to see and do. But it also has tough academic classes that you need to stay on top of or you will not do well here. Lots of opportunities to learn, grow and experience things. The dorms are okay, but it wasn't a priority for me to have the best one. The food selection is To Die For!! Plenty of places to choose from and a variety of menus too. So - come to Tech. You wont regret it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is a great school. For anyone thinking about applying or attending, it's a great school with lots of opportunities to learn and grow as a person. Most people focus on academics and VT is not a huge party-school and if you put in the work, you can have a fun time in a great environment.
