Good school that's fun to attend, but not much to do other than drink and party, Blacksburg isn't exactly a thriving city. School doesn't offer many "fun" classes, such as skiing, etc.

Va Tech was one of the best experiences! My number one recommendation is to be as involved as possible. It is a big school which is awesome - you can be as connected and as involved as you want to be. There are lots of different activities to be involved in on campus. If you have a passion you can pursue it at Tech. The environment is completely safe - the town and the school are geared to 18-25 year olds.

I graduated in three years from Tech (because I could and because of a lack of money for tuition - I was out-of-state), in many respects, I wish I could have stayed longer. Even though I only graduated a few years ago, I get more and more nostalgic. The place grows on you and it's funny talking to my non-Tech friends, none of them care as much about their school, so it's definitely a unique experience.
