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...

    Absolutely the most beautiful campus that I visited. VPI has a lot of students, but it has a small feeling. I am very happy to become part of the Hokie Nation #VT2021, @cappex.

    A great school with an outstanding reputation (and not just for out sports). Really glad I ended up going to this school. There's so much to do and see and there's always something going on here on campus. Plus, if you're a little curious, there are a ton of classes and topics to choose from. The advisers are great for choosing your classes and the professors are usually more than willing to help. Go Hokies!

    this school is beautiful, the buildings almost remind me of castles. after eating in the dining hall and seeing all the food choices, i can understand why it's ranked 1st! there are a lot of great things going on here, academic and otherwise.
