VT was an excellent all-around college experience. The classes were thought-provoking and challenging, and the social aspects of college shaped me into a well-rounded person.

Virginia Tech has a welcoming student body and more opportunity for activities than one can utilize in 4 years. The great education and wonderful environment make Tech the best college choice I could have made.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

Virginia Tech is overall pretty good. They have an excellent school for engineers. I think that, despite it being a large shook, the faculty are very open and willing to meet with students and to help them and guide them. However, I do think VT is too focussed on athletics (football) and therefore they are not as academically esteemed as other schools. Also, so much attention is given to the engineering school and sciences (biology, chemistry, etc.) that other department suffer for it and are ranked very low (social sciences and humanities). Virginia Tech needs to find a way to have a good engineering school but improve the other programs as well.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2011

Virginia Tech's BIT program was a great way to get ready to be a consultant. They teach the beginning of many different technologies so when you start working you're not starting from scratch.

Degree: Food Science
Graduation Year: 2012

I have obtained degrees from multiple colleges. By far, my warmest, most meaningful educational experiences were formed at Virginia Tech. Once a Hokie, always a Hokie! Can't wait to go back for Alumni events this summer!

Degree: Biochemistry
Graduation Year: 1976

My time spent at VT was more worthwhile than anything I could have imagined. I received a fabulous education that has served me well all these years. I was able to go back to school in my 40's and was better prepared to do so than recent grads from other colleges. Will always be thankful for my years spent here and all this school afforded me.

Degree: Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2013

Absolutely loved my time at Virginia Tech. This college helped me become successful in every aspect of life. I truly cherish my time there and the people I've met. I know that I have a community that I can reach out to at any stage in my life for support and continued success.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2013

Very solid public school(great in the sciences, engineering, agriculture, etc.). Pretty average for my programs of study,(Communication and Psychology) but still definitely some talented teachers and useful courses. Blacksburg is beautiful. I could have taken more advantage of the college experience, but I'm still proud to be a Hokie.
