2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: This school is very strict.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Over 1700 Keydets in three buildings...3-6 man rooms.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: VMI is pretty darn safe.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I've received various scholarships that have really helped out.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Lexington is nice but small.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs aren't usually a problem here, but if you fail a drug test you're out.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: You can see a storm coming, but that doesn't mean formations or classes will get cancelled.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: VMI does not have a Greek Life.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: VMI has a hard academic curriculum that has to be balanced with our other duties such as military and athletic duties.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: There are many computers and computer labs at VMI, but the speed and reliability of the internet is very low.

College Senior

Majors: I've had no internship experience at VMI

5 College Senior

Majors: The engineering program here is the best possible. The student/teacher ratio is really good. I've learned more here that I thought possible.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a great place to be from but not at

2 College Senior

Nightlife: You have to leave Lexington and go to other colleges

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: Crozet food sucks. it is a military school though

5 College Senior

Academics: engineering programs at VMI are the best. You can't hide from learning the material because of the student to professor ratio. They make sure you know the material or you will fail. There are no curves on grades so be prepared to have a lower GPA than high school. I know under grad schools like VA Tech who have curves throughout their programs so don't expect the same. You will also get a job if you graduate

1 College Senior

Campus Strictness: VMI is the strictest college in the country. You will learn when and where to break the rules... then again I've marched a lot of PTs

5 College Senior

Facilities: There is always something for cadets to do... sleep is probably my favorite but I don't really get time for that.

4 College Senior

Facilities: academic buildings are great. barracks life pretty much sucks.

2 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: W&L hate VMI people and VMI people hate W&L. The townies are very redneck and there are only 2 good bars in town to drink away your sorrows

1 College Senior

Greek Life: There is no greek life. It's VMI

4 College Senior

Computers: Engineering building has the best computers and technology. I know a lot of the liberal arts cadets complain about their computers... most of them just play video games all day so they don't need them anyways

3 College Senior

Scholarships: VMI says they offer a lot of scholarships but that is not the case with the tough economic times the school is facing

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: You are drug tested randomly so don't do it.

3 College Senior

Weather: It sucks in the Winter. Weather is depressing
