What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, amazing college to attend with well-qualified professors to teach their subjects at this small, liberal-arts Virginia university. The campus was suitcase-oriented because most students were from the state of Virginia, but there was a growing international community that made it a fun, diverse experience. I'd recommend this college to anyone who wants to be nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley with an open minded group of professors.

I love Virginia Tech. It is a beautiful campus set in the mountains. The classes are rigorous but interesting. The food is great. My roommates are cool. I am so honored to be a part of the engineering college. Getting around the campus is pretty easy if you download the map.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is a close knit community where student hold the door more often for each other than most people do off campus. I'm proud of our campus motto "Ut Prosim" meaning that I may serve. Our campus loves giving back to the community and helping one another. The food is incredible and I feel like our professors genuinely care for the success of all students learning the material required of our field and future careers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia tech is a wonderful University. I'm currently in my third year at VT and it has been an amazing experience. I fell in love with the University three years ago when I visited during their campus wide service project "The Big Event" and saw students and faculty living out the school motto "That I May Serve". I have participated in this tradition through local community work and on an international clean water mission trip to Honduras where I was proud to represent my school. Virginia Tech is rich in history and tradition but so many innovative projects and ideas come from the University. It truly feels like home here and I often meet other Hokies across the U.S and the world. It is a wonderful community dedicated to building each other up and striving for greatness in the future. Go Hokies!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is perfect for somebody who wants a large student base while still being able to find a home. There is always something to do and you can find your niche within weeks of being on campus. When you feel like you need to diversify your interests, Virginia Tech has cultivated a community that allows you to do that any day. Without a doubt, I feel like anybody can come to Virginia Tech and eventually call it home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The teachers are very dedicated and competent. Through in class activities and online homework we are forced to understand and review the information we learn. However, the other students in my classes are not as competent. They struggle with the simple concepts that I learned freshman year of high school. When I meet up to form a study group, it turns into me tutoring my peers. I love this opportunity and it forces me to have a better understanding on the material, so I can teach it to my peers in various ways until they understand. However, it would also be nice to have my peers pushing me to be better because they are on the same level as I am. Aside from academics, the students here are nice but there are definitely friend groups, you don't just hang out with anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There is an unspoken beauty about Virginia Tech, and its not just the breathtaking campus. The students, professors, and the Blacksburg community as a whole is extraordinary. The people are kind and helpful, the education is topnotch, and the feeling you get when you're walking across the drillfield or jumping to "Enter Sandman" on the bleachers or Lane Stadium as you are surrounded by maroon and orange is unlike anything else. Regardless of where you are from, This Is Home and I'm proud to call myself a Hokie.
