Campus Housing: I love that there are many option for living on campus, and that living on-campus is required for freshmen and popular for upperclassmen. There is a strong sense of community.

Overall Experience: I have had a couple professors/TA's that I felt were not able to properly teach the course, but overall it has been a positive experience.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The support has historically been amazing. We still go to the games even if we don't know if we'll win or not.

Scholarships: I received no aid from the school other than a $5000 loan for this year. With out-of-state tuition, I should be eligible for much more than is offered. I will not be able to afford attending after next semester, so I need to find outside scholarships and take out a large sum of loans throughout my time at Virginia Tech.

Campus Housing: I would say that the dorms on campus are pretty average and standard. Community bathrooms, roommates, bunk beds/loft beds/whatever you want to arrange it into. Although it can be frustrating because everyone pays the same for housing, yet the rooms vary GREATLY in size. For example, my room is actually smaller than others because it is cut off by our lounge. But then the guy across from me literally have a room twice our size. And like I said, we pay the same amount for housing.

Greek Life: Obviously, each Fraternity and Sorority is different, but I see a lot of service and giving back to the community with the Frats here at Virginia Tech. They definitely have an impact on the town and in the social scene on campus by throwing events and you can always see signs for them trying to promote some event. Non-Greeks have varying opinions of fraternities, like many think we are cliquey, some think of Animal House, and others see the good they do. It's really just a matter of your experiences with them.

Guys & Girls: Virginia Tech has a very diverse campus, and that being said you can find guys/girls in almost any sort of group. Sorority girls dress like sorority girls, and VT has lots of attractive ladies! Unfortunately, many of them here at Tech are not interested in relationships, and for some reason I just do not see a lot of them around here.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of options for off-campus dining, and it's all really good. Plus, you don't have to go very far to get to it, and it's not terribly expensive.

Health & Safety: The campus in general feels really safe. We even have our own police department.

Party Scene: If you're into parties, you'll have some great options. But if you don't like partying, you'll also be able to find plenty of other stuff to do.

Greek Life: The greek life is pretty decent in size, but it's not overwhelming. There are a lot of different fraternities and sororities to choose from, so if you want to be a part of greek life you'll definitely be able to find an organization that' s good for you.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The school spirit at my school, especially when it comes to sports, is amazing. Everyone gets excited to go to sporting events and in general people are proud of the school.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The football program has national recognition.

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.
