Virginia Tech Reviews
Virginia Tech is a fantastic institution and highly ranked. It is known for engineering and agriculture, but has several other majors that are worth looking at. For example, not many people know that the Hospitality and Tourism Management major is highly ranked. The thing that I would most like to see change has to do with scholarships. There are not many merit based, and scholarships are not as frequently found for out of state students. This is still a wonderful university and it really does have some of the best food and school spirit out there. There are an abundance of opportunities if you are willing to go out and get them. Go Hokies!
I am a sophomore majoring in Architecture and I have really enjoyed my time at Virginia Tech. The classes are excellent, the campus is beautiful, and student life is a lot of fun! Food in the dining halls really does live up to its reputation and the Blacksburg area offers a lot of activities and unique opportunities. As an architecture major, I do spend a lot of time in the studio spaces, but with proper time management, I still enjoy participating in athletics and other student activities.
Great school and great college town atmosphere. Some buildings are outdated but overall a very pretty campus, especially in the fall since Blacksburg is in the mountains. If you're a nature person, there are plenty of hiking trails and the New River is only a 30 minute drive. Students and staff are very passionate for Virginia Tech, especially during football season. Great experience my freshman year, and I can't wait to go back for sophomore year!
