Virginia Tech Reviews
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 Some buildings are outdated but overall a very pretty campus, especially in the fall since Blacksburg is in the mountains.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!
When it comes to Virginia Tech, I've got a simple, 3 word phrase that speaks for itself: "This is Home." I never imagine while being away for college I would ever truly feel as if I was at my 'home away from home' but Tech has proved me wrong. Although we have a large student body, everyone seems to find 'their people' which makes this place so personal. The only thing I could think to change is the diversity level; although it seems we are a very diverse campus, when you look at the numbers, it is clear that we are not. Diversity should be incorporated more into our own little culture here at Virginia Tech!
The school and the community is tight knit because of Virginia Tech taking up most the property in Blacksburg. The school gives back a lot to the community and the townies and students feel very connected to one another. It's almost as if Blacksburg and Virginia Tech are interchangeable terms. The students also tend to be tight knit making the campus seem small and connected. It's difficult not to run into someone you know no matter where you are on campus. However, this creates a very inclusive college experience where you develop increased confidence and sense of self. Most importantly, having a college full of friends and tradition creates the "college memories" you'll reflect on years from now.
