Virginia Tech Reviews
Virginia Tech is an ideal institution for new opportunities and growth. There is such a huge amount of school spirit and pride for being a Hokie with the students, which I have never genuinely heard or seen from other institutions! Campus/student life is notably wonderful, and the majority of the students are incredibly lively and welcoming. There are so many different people on campus, and they all have their own amazing passions. The institution provides exposure to many experiences to explore like clubs, GobblerFest, athletics and football games, dorm activities, parties, hiking trails, and even checking out scenic spots on campus and throughout the town. From what I've already experienced through campus visits as a prospective Freshman for Fall 2018, I'm so stoked to fully experience and indulge in everything about my new second home!
Virginia Tech has been an overall good experience for me. The professors care about your education, and really put forth strong effort to better the learning environment for students. Tech is also a very diverse campus, with students from all around the world! I have always favored that aspect of Tech especially, since I love meeting new people with different experiences that they can share with me. Attending Virginia Tech has exposed me to lots of new situations and experiences, that I feel I couldn't get at any other school. All in all Tech is a great place to learn and grow!
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!
