4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are many apartments conveniently located on or near campus. There is a great selection with a variety of prices, and it is easy to find an apartment and roommates. The neighborhoods are safe and include many amenities.

Party Scene: I don't particularly enjoy parties so I don't go to them, but my hallmates and roommate were out at parties every weekend and they always had lots of fun and I trusted that they would get return safely.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a wide variety of restaurants off campus. There are fancy, costly restaurants, and there are cheap fast food places open late at night. Many restaurants are within walking distance or are a short car ride away.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: VT has just about every kind of food. No matter what you're craving VT will have it, and it will taste amazing. And there are dining halls all around campus so food is easily accessible.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm living is great because it's your own little community. Some of the rooms can be small, but the dorms are clean and they are big enough to live comfortably with a roommate. Most dorms have a game room or a lounge available and they are fun and convenient if you feel cramped in your room.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are always students looking for roommates, so finding an apartment is no hassle.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: If you want a party, it's very easy to find one. However, good luck finding one during exam weeks.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: VT has a great off-campus selection. THey are very convenient and take into account what college students can afford.

4 College Junior

Administration: We have a great police force at VT. They strict at times, but you will never feel unsafe.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: VT food is the best. There are so many options that it's almost difficult to choose. Yes, the dining plan is expensive but it is much more convenient then paying cash.

Scholarships: The school did a great job helping me with all my financial aid.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is exactly what you can expect with college dorm living. It's sometimes cramped, but if you get a good roommate, you'll have a lot of fun.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: It literally the best college food in the country

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I love the greek life at our school. Wish the housing was off campus for everyone though. Greeks and non greeks aren't at war as individuals but as a whole they're not very good together. Lastly, if you're from a preppy area it's easier for you to get into a fraternity but anyone can get in for sure.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have mediocre popular sports teams and then all of our random sports are very good. By random I mean ones that aren't aired on TV. As far as popular sports, we always beat the best team and lose to the worst. Just how it goes.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are good spots and bad spots to live. All you need to know is which places those are.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not being in a fraternity there are a lot of apartment parties but they get crowded and anyone can come. Guys have to pay 5 at the door which is annoying. Being in a fraternity is fun. There is always something to do with a bunch of people you know from other events. Only down side would be dues.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Honestly just as good if not a little better than on campus dining. You can eat anywhere with ten dollars and usually pretty late.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: It sucks to live on campus no matter what because there are RA's and cops. Once you get off campus, you can do whatever you want.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Not much experience with them, however, they did their jobs very well.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It is literally the best.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I can get pizza late night and that is all I need.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Apply for the school scholarships and do the fasfa on time.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are many options with the dining halls and a lot of variety.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The convenience is good and close to classes an dining halls.

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.
