5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The atosphere is perfect for a college experience. The students are friendly, the professors are amazing, the campus is gorgeous. The food is the best out of any college and has dozens of options for any needs. Classes are not too big and individual help from professors and TAs are always available to you. The football games are electric and the campus safety is high.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone wants to hire a Hokie in modern times. The school has a great name for a reason. It turns out great students that will literally invent the future.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have always felt safe on campus. Whether it be late at night or just a regular day, I have always felt protected and no unease to walk home by myself. I trust the other students and they all trust me. Its very mutual but its what Hokies feel.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Had problems with small room and rowdy roommates but it all depends on who your roomie is. I know others who love their roommate but there is nothing special in any of the rooms. Some are bigger than others and the lottery system is hit or miss.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not much to say about Greek life. You see the letters around and recognize people you met at parties but you are neither better or worse with Greek life.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sporting event atmosphere is amazing but playing intramurals you get to feel the same team feel, without the intesne pressure to always perform. Thousands take part and its well worth the sign up.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is simply the greatest college experience in the entire world. The people and the professors are extremely approachable and nice and love to make conversation. There are always community events and bashes and always a ton of fun parties around. Clubs and intramurals are amazing to take part in and the food s incredible too. Would recommend to all people!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is a lot of Greek life. The fraternities are especially visible on campus. However, they are possible to avoid with no negative affects for those who are not interested.

Campus Housing: There are great dorms, like New Res, and horrible dorms that should be torn down, like Slusher.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Virginia Tech students have strong school spirit and value the education their university provides. In fact, many Tech students have such a great time as undergraduates that they stay at Tech for graduate work. Tech's academics have been improving each year, and admissions into the University is becoming more selective. Each freshman class has come in with higher high school GPAs and SAT scores. The rural setting of Blacksburg, Virginia is enjoyable for some students and frustrating for others. Even though Tech is home to more than 20,000 undergraduates, Blacksburg is still a small town. The area surrounding the town provides all kinds of outdoor activities. Even the drive to Virginia Tech down Route 81 is enjoyable. For students who come from more urban settings, Virginia Tech's small downtown and limited number of restaurants can be exasperating. However, even city students can appreciate how easy it is to walk from campus to town and how safe the town is. It is a friendly town and school, and that makes it easy to meet people.

Tech offers hundreds of student organizations, and more are created every year. These groups organize activities and allow students a bridge between social and academic worlds. When it comes to nightlife, students have all kinds of options. Downtown offers a number of bars and clubs, while parties can be found at Greek houses and apartment complexes. Virginia Tech is a large school, so some students end up feeling lost in the crowd, but there are benefits to being a large school. Tech has many resources and can offer all kinds of opportunities to students. Opportunities come in the form of professors who are very involved in their fields, internships, jobs found by the Career Center, and classes that use the latest technology. Students who have the best experiences at Tech find a major that they love and then get involved. Virginia Tech has a lot to offer its students,
as long as students make the effort to take advantage of all that is available.
