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...

    If you go to Virginia Tech you'll always be smiling-- yes, sometimes it'll be hard, but it'll be worth it. The friendliness and sense of community at VT lets everyone be themselves and reach their full potential. From football to late nights at Newman Library, you really can do it all at Virginia Tech.

    A university that manages to be inclusive despite its huge population and the looming presence of Cadets and Greeks. Beautiful campus in the mountains and an open and friendly student body. The professors I have encountered have all been kind and helpful.

    This school is the perfect mix of studious and fun. People are friendly and outgoing, and there is plenty to do on the social scene, but everyone maintains a focus primarily on their studies. Most of the administration's focus is on football and the engineering program, while humanities and other sports are somewhat sidelined.

    I am just researching the school, but I am already highly impressed! Virginia Tech has the most beautiful campus I've ever seen, the food is absolutely amazing, and the Southern Hospitality thing is a nice change from the usual New Jersey ignorance I am used to. I can't imagine anyone could be unhappy there!

    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.
