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...

    The food is AMAZING, you can get pretty much anything you want on campus. The Mechanical Engineering program is outstanding and the Darmstadt dual-BSME degree path is a great career boost. The campus and students in general are all very prideful and there is a great mood on campus; all the students stand together and LOVE Virginia Tech.

    Coming from the far away land of Nevada, I expected to find that there would be something of a settling period when I moved to VT. On the contrary, the plentiful student resources and friendly people of the university made my transition smooth and gentle. So far, so good!

    A tightly knit community that facilitates educational and personal growth. The faculty provided gives its students the best opportunities for research and assists in furthering our education beyond the classroom. The campus life is incomparable, the food is out of this world, and it is always good to be a Hokie.

    Virginia Tech is the best place in the world. I absolutely love everything about the school, besides the parking issues. I caught myself referring to my apartment off-campus as home when making plans with my friends.

    The food is definitely overrated, though it is palatable from almost all of the places on campus. I do not like the size of the university for sure; I feel lost and like a number, nor have I made many friends. And there are way to many Northern Virginians down here.

    A large campus tucked away in the mountains. It's a beautiful campus setting.
