Virginia Tech Reviews
Review Virginia Tech
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!
I honestly can't imagine being a student at any other college. After starting at Virginia Tech, I quickly realized that my original hesitance was very misplaced. Although Virginia Tech is a HUGE university, it doesn't feel nearly as large. If you want to get involved in service work, it's as easy as getting in touch with an officer or going to Gobblerfest and signing up for a club that peaks your interest. If you want to get involved with intramural sports, there are many different options to do so which are all easy to find out about. It is a very athletic-centered community but I strongly believe that there's something for everyone. I was never the biggest fan of sports but I've found a way to give back to the community and help animals by working at football games instead of watching them, though even that is a great experience for non-sports-fans. I wasn't expecting to be as happy as I can definitely say that I am after finishing my freshman year as a Hokie at Virginia Tech!
There are plenty of international students and students of different races/ethnicities/religions, but I wouldn't call Virginia Tech an extremely diverse campus. In comparison to some other more urban universities, it's okay. It doesn't particularly lean liberal or conservative; I find it moderate. As far as economic backgrounds go, there are rich kids but there are also low-income kids. I see that matter as pretty moderate as well. It's no UVa!
