3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The safety and security of our campus is not the best.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors do everything they can to help, but the class rooms are very out dated and small.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: We have the best alumni network.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living in Barracks with 3-6 other roommates is not very spacious.

3 College Junior

Athletics: As a Senior Military School, athletics aren't that important.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Nothing bad happens here. Like... nothing bad.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Small-size classroom provides close relationship

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Graduate from VMI= any job you want if you work hard

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: We live in barracks, and they are very old.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have great athletes, but individual performance does not trump teamwork. We tend to lose a lot, but I know that in time, we will make national championship like we did before.

When we are winning, and do win, however, everyone's support is off the roof as the volume of everyone's chants are deafening.

Facilities are pretty great, and currently one of the gyms are being redone. In addition, a giant indoor facility is being built to host track meets.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is a challenging and grueling experience as we, cadets, are pushed far beyond our limits. We have learned to manage time so well that without it, we would be failing or be close to failing. Appreciation for almost everything in life such as, food, free time, physical activity, and much more has been realized by many of us here. The brotherhood spirit that is formed during the initial portion of the college, called the "Ratline", is eternal and unforgettable. I sometimes regret coming here, but only because of how difficult it can be. However, in overall, I love it here.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: This school is incredibly safe. Accountability for all students is taken twice a day, and there is even a guard team led by cadets and headed by different officers serving on the Commandant's staff. Safety is taken very seriously at VMI.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Classes are small, professors are professional, and cadets are respectful. This is the best college in the nation and certainly the hardest. Cadets must learn to manage time effectively, because there is almost never any free time due to rat line events, extra-curricular activities, and mandatory inspections and formations. It is impossible to graduate from VMI by yourself, you need to rely on your brother rats and push through together.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A degree from the Virginia Military Institute means the world to any graduate. The alumni connections from this small school are some of the best and strongest in the country. It can truly get you many jobs in multiple fields. This degree means something.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: All cadets live in barracks, there is no other choice. It is very cramped and cadets do not even get beds really, they have small mattress pads they roll every morning and wooden racks they place the pads on. Barracks rooms do not have air-conditioning, but cadets are required to keep and maintain very clean rooms with inspections two to three times a week.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The teams themselves may not always preform the best, however, school spirit and attendance by the corps of cadets is hard to beat. The gyms are brand new and all cadets use them.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Virginia Military Institute is the toughest and most rewarding school in the nation. VMI trains and develops future leaders in a spartan atmosphere and cultivates teamwork and leadership from all who attend. You cannot make it through VMI alone, you need to rely on your brothers around you in order to finish the rat line, get your ring, and get the prestigious degree.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Pretty good overall. Most club teams are better than the varsity.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is a great school with great connections. you have to work hard and earn everything you receive. Well worth the work though.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety is key at VMI, it's very safe at VMI. Sexual Assault is taken seriously if it ever happens, which it doesn't often.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the school, I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The bonds that I make with my classmates are everlasting. Our classes are very small, an average of 11:1 student to teacher ratio. The professor gets to know you, ad is very interested in your success. Professors are always available for help, and often come in to school in the evening to help students.
