What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is a great place to get an education! It is located in the small town of Blacksburg, once you get there you feel like you're apart of a close-knit community. A big part of the Hokie experience is going to football or basketball games, they're very exciting!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My school is more than a resume enhancer. My school is more than a networking system. My school is more than a street for greek life parties. My school is more than five story libraries, first class dining halls, early morning cadet drills, and late night football games. At Virginia Tech, I bought my first fish with my freshman roommate. At Virginia Tech, I spent my first night working on a future-deciding portfolio. At Virginia Tech, I made my first late night dining hall run, ran my first 5k, survived my first college exams, and have kept my first college friends for years. Virginia Tech is where I've learned to live fully by myself and live fully for others. Virginia Tech is where the motto "This is Home" becomes a lifestyle, not just an objective.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Virginia Tech is a great school with plenty of opportunities for students in almost any discipline. Professors are always available and willing to help, students are friendly and welcoming, and overall there is a strong sense of community and acceptance. The school could use more artistic/musically focused clubs and groups

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is the best school. The atmosphere both during the week and on the weekends is friendly, social, intellectual, and exciting. Football games are a blast and Virginia Tech's academics, especially in the technological fields, is incredible. Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, Virginia Tech has a place for you. Everyone is happy and excited to be there at all times.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Recently, I finished my freshman year at Virginia Tech, and it truly is the best school for me and for you too! Coming to college, I was scared I would find people like me: motivated, gregarious, enthusiastic, and just plain wild. Within the first few weeks, I had heard more languages and met more people than I had in the first 2 years of high school. The social life at Virginia Tech is booming, and there are hundreds of clubs, organizations, and activities that students can be apart of. If you like your food, Virginia Tech is rated #1 in campus food across the nation, and they certainly live up to it with lobster, london broil, Chinese, Italian, and much more. Finally, for the academics, the most important part! As for engineering, I didn't know VT was a top 25 engineering school until I got in, and their difficult and rigorous courses have pushed me to grow as a person and as a student. Overall, there's very little to dislike about Virginia Tech, and I've only found no more than 5 people that haven't fallen in love with it. Like every love story, take a risk. Apply and fall in love with Virginia Tech!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the large school-small feel vibe that Virginia Tech has. It is a large university with small schools within it. I will graduate in a class with less than 2,000 others. The campus is absolutely stunning and food is rated #1 in the country. I couldn't be more please with where I chose to go to college!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Absolutely love it. After everything the school has been through, it's security is super heightened. I feel extremely safe and there is always something to do. Never a dull moment! Everyone is also extremely nice and welcoming. I never feel left out, especially on game days. That's when we all truly get together!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Good school, great food, good professors. But it is big so it can feel a bit overwhelming or lonely at times. Traffic is also crazy when students are in town, on that note so is every dining hall all the time so never expect any food in turner without waiting for at least 1/2 hour. The rent is pretty expensive for off-campus students. But there definitely is something for everybody here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is not just a school. It provides a safe place and a new home away from home where it is okay to ask questions and you're always learning. There is one opportunity after the next just waiting to be discovered. I would really not want to be anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Tech is a place that encourages students to reach for the sky. The campus has a welcoming atmosphere, and it's impossible to feel alone. This is a school that ensures that their students have the best possible experience. The dining halls are unbeatable, the campus facilities are top-notch, and above all, the faculty care very deeply about their students' performance and takes whatever measures required to help them. I've never seen a school with as much spirit and heart as Virginia Tech. It's unrivaled in every single category, and I'm beyond proud to call myself a Hokie.
