At Tech the professors have experience in the fields in which they teach so not only do the provide book lessons, but also life lessons. As a double major in Communication and Theater Arts and a Spanish minor i get a very diverse exposure to different classes. Within both my majors the departments ask for students to take classes within the major that is outside of our concentration, which provides students with a chance to get a glimpse of different aspects of the major, and even if there is no interest in the other aspects, students can develop an appreciation...

    Pretty good school overall. However, it just wasn't for me. I went there wanting to become an engineer and after taking a few classes, I realized engineering was not what i wanted to do. So, i switched my major to Information Technology, but I didnt like the curriculum that Tech offered so i have since transferred. Also, the school is very cold which i didnt like, but if you like snowboarding or winter sports like that you will probably like the school, it snowed in April last year! Too cold for me.

    Coming to Tech will be one of the best choices of your life. The atmosphere is wonderful, everyone is incredibly nice and full of school spirit-you immediately feel part of the Hokie community. The academics are outstanding, with teachers and students who care and will help you along the way.

    One of the friendliest, safest, most fun schools to go to. We have some of the most school spirit you will find, and a beautiful campus to top it off. Did I forget to mention the award-winning campus dining? I love being a Hokie for life!

    The most accepting, diverse, and spirited schools in Virginia and one of the top in the nation. All aspects of a good college are here: strong academics, strong athletic programs, large club activity, availability to scholarships and student aid.
