I visited this schools Corps of Cadets and it seems quite nice and full of tradition. It felt like a family and there where a lot of nice people.

I am a transfer student from George Mason, and I have never regretted my decision! There is so much school spirit here, and no matter who you are or where you are from, you will find your niche at Virginia Tech. There are so many resources here available, and professors with first hand experience.
