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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a rising sophomore and a cadet at Virginia Tech, I am proud to call myself a Hokie. Everyone is open and kind, and it's very easy to get access to help whether it be academic, physical, or emotional. If you're into sports, than we are the go-to place, as our multitude of teams take the spotlight in every competition. At Virginia Tech, we are more than just you're average student body. We're a family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Unlike most state schools, VT has a student population comprised of people from all different parts of the country and even the world. These people are undoubtedly some of the kindest people. Personally, I lost my wallet at a party and it was returned to me within a day. To my surprise, every dollar and credit card still in tact. Similarly, we are a very strong community… After the 2007 massacre, the community came together and proved to be stronger than the storm.

Virginia Tech, in my opinion, is one of the best institutions in the world. Virginia Tech's motto is "Ut Prosim", and the students there live up to the motto. When I walk around the campus, I see students, faculty, and staff serving the community of Blacksburg and the surrounding communities in many different ways.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall the experience at Virginia Tech is one no one can possibly ever forget. There campus has a unique blend of everything and a major place to go if you want great academics and great athletics. The surrounding scenery is so beautiful, especially in the fall. The mountains can be different shades of color to blend in and make what people can sometimes call a maroon and orange effect, which is unique to the school. Athletics is a major part of the school. With multiple sports teams placing in the top 4 of the ACC, and even some winning. Sports at tech can be very competitive. Football season is one of the most hype season at tech, with game days being crazy form a lot of activity going on. Not only do all the students come together, but also alumni and just regular fans will come together to cheer on the team. On top of football, there are other amazing teams you can go watch such as Lacrosse, Tennis, Swimming & Diving, Track & Field, Soccer, and Baseball. The teams come together to support each other like nothing else as well, which shows the tight family atmosphere the athletic teams have. Football isn’t the only great thing about the athletic department! On top of the athletic teams though are the normal student who you walk by everyday going to class or somewhere else. The connection you have with these people are unreal. There is some type of kindness to everyone you walk by. People will smile at you and will always help you out if you're in need. No one is considered too good for anyone else because we are all family that sticks together. On top of that, the amount of respect everyone gives one another is insane. Everyone is polite and will always find a way to help not only you, but also the community as well. It’s not just the students who are kind either. The community is almost one big family you could consider. The people who live there are kind and caring. Not to mention the police department helps the best they can and try to make it as safe as they possibly can, which they have done a great job at. The dining is by far one of the best around, which is why we are currently top 2 in the country! There are plenty of places to choose from, which gives you a wide variety of options so you can have something new every week. If you don’t want something from the dining halls, there’s always downtown to walk to. The food downtown is also amazing and there’s something for anyone, which helps a lot if you’re not from around here. The academics is one of the best in the country. Tech offers a wide variety of majors and make sure people can do them and if people are struggling, can give them amazing help. The tutoring is amazing and will always help anyone with anything. If you struggle to much, you can always ask your professors and your deans for advice and help, which goes a long way. On top of academic help, there’s also mental help from the counseling centers. They are always there to help, which goes a long way and they want to make sure people are fine and can get the most help they can. Everyone has your best interest at heart and will help you reach your long term and short term goals. With all that, no one can ever strip you of being a Hokie. Once a Hokie, always a Hokie!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Virginia Tech, and even though I just graduated I would love to return there sometime in the future. The campus is beautiful, and the food is very highly rated. Every professor I've had is great and really cares about their students and were always available to help. Class sizes start out large when you're in general classes, but as you get further into your major the class size decreases a lot and classes become a lot more personal. I think the on-campus is housing is great besides the few dorms that don't have air conditioning, and there's plenty of off-campus housing options after your freshman year that are also wonderful.
