Virginia Tech is absolutely gorgeous. I remember when I drove up with my parents my Senior year of high school, I was not too impressed by its rather pastoral landscape, especially coming from a big city -- but the campus and town of Blacksburg really become your home-away-from-home. While it's a huge campus, it doesn't really feel that way. The majority of the academic buildings surround the Drillfield at the center of campus. Mixed in between these buildings include the library, dining halls, and some dormitories. And while the campus may seem large and overwhelming at first, once you make your way around, it starts to feel a lot smaller. Not to mention, most of the buildings are made of "Hokie Stone," which give it a somewhat medieval look, and when it snows, it seriously feels like Hogwarts.
