    Don't be afraid to get involved. Grades are important but internships and experiences are valued more. Most importantly have fun!

    When considering Virginia Tech, keep in mind that if you want to attend a University that will stimulate growth in your education as well as in who you are as an individual, that VT is the place for you. There are multiple opportunities to become involved in research, as well as hundreds of organizations on campus for you to become involved in. Make sure that you are prepared to be a focused and determined student because academics are not taken lightly, and the faculty does expect the absolute best out of their students. Working hard is a commonality in all Virginia Tech students, but all of that hard work feels worth it when you get to jump to enter sandman in lane stadium.

I was seriously considering a transfer to a smaller school, but the nearest school that has my major is Pitt (which is about the same size as Tech).
