    If you are planning on becoming an engineer, this is the school for you! The program is difficult but it's engineering, it isn't a walk in the park. Gaining the Freshman-15 is a bigger probability here than other schools since we have #1 food in the nation, so go to the gym! Go to as many football and other sports games as possible! They're always fun!

    - Meet people! Having friends in your classes and dorm can't hurt ya. - Find something new. Intramural battleship is way more extreme than the name suggests. - Explore the area. Blacksburg has some nice dining, a new theater, and is surrounded b the great outdoors. - Be prepared for sudden weather changes. It's something of a joke.

    Everyone mentioned the crazy weather and it was true - weird blustery wind the day we visited in November.
