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 Some buildings are outdated but overall a very pretty campus, especially in the fall since Blacksburg is in the mountains.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!
Although I have only been here for a few months, I can tell that Virginia Tech will provide me with many opportunities for a successful future. It is a beautiful campus with a diverse population. People are very helpful and care about their education. The institution also provides excellent academics, especially in the science and engineering fields. If you are looking for research opportunities, this is a school to consider. The spirit here is also very prevalent, especially during football games. People are proud to go here. One issue with the school is its infamous Math Emporium, which I believe is a bad way to teach students mathematics. It is essentially a large room where students take online courses with little assistance. I hope that the university replaces this one day.
