Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 1989

First, great location! But, at least in my major (business), there were a lot of real world teachers balancing academic professionals, so you really got a rounded view of the profession. I also love that a lot of math and science are required for any degree, ensuring that when you work with highly technical people, you do speak their language.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2012

College proved to be an exercise in responsibility via time management. Classes progress in difficulty based on prior effort, so if you put in the the effort for "easier" classes and excel in those, the higher level classes are manageable.

Virginia is an excellent well rounded university. From the education to community to scenery you really can't go wrong.

Degree: Geography
Graduation Year: 2010

Virginia Tech is a wonderful place to get an education. It is a large school but exists in a smallish community that feels very close. It is possible to get everything you need locally and there is plenty to do downtown and in the surrounding (see: beautiful) countryside.

Wish I could go back! I had so many amazing experiences and made a lot of lasting friendships. I couldn't imagine going to another college.

Graduation Year: 2005

Virginia Tech was a fantastic school. I went in with an idea of what I thought I wanted to do and when I changed my mind, faculty and staff supported me in exploring my options and finding the right fit. There are myriad opportunities on campus to get involved and active; in whatever ways you want. Plus, the campus is absolutely beautiful!

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

Virginia Tech is huge, which I really enjoy. The campus is fairly nice, and is undergoing extensive rennovations, especially to the military student barracks/housing. Upcoming changes are planned for the "Drill Field" and for the area surrounding the brand new flagship engineering building (which is stunning). I do dislike the fact that Virginia Tech is a university that places so much emphasis on military students and education. I think it really pulls down the quality of the university's education. I was attending a diversity council meeting at the university (which plans how to increase diversity) and the meeting went to hell and back because one of the ROTC instructors started referring to veterans as a minority group. As a social scientist, I found this absurd, because enlisting in the military (and thus later becoming a veteran) is a completely voluntary task, unlike the race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or disability that people are born with that make them true minority groups.

Degree: Communication and Media Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2012

Virginia Tech is an absolutely incredible community, and I could not be more proud to be a Hokie. The school features a gorgeous campus, dedicated faculty, and an extraordinary number of different student activities to pick from. Of course, it also doesn't hurt to have some of the best college dining options in the country! Everyone at Virginia Tech strives to embody the university motto of 'Ut Prosim' - that I may serve. VT hosts the largest collegiate relay for life in the country every year, and also runs an annual "Big Event" where thousands of students complete service projects to help give back to the Blacksburg community. I loved my four years at VT, and wish I could have stayed for more!

Degree: Animal Sciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2007

A wonderful school with a beautiful campus. Blacksburg is a small town with a very friendly atmosphere and fun things to do outdoors (float the New River, camp at Caldwell fields, etc.) The campus food is surprisingly amazing and the dorms are nice enough. I had so many great professors there and tons of friends. I miss Virginia Tech almost every day!
