This is my sophomore year and will be transferring out ASAP. Even if you love football. Its all there is to do here on the weekends. The residential dorm environment is horrible. The student conduct office that treats you like you have zero rights. They are more concern about controlling their student body then being a progressive university and developing lasting relationships with the students. Not a place you will feel welcome if your are at all liberal. Run away- try William and Mary or UVA or a private university. DON'T GO HERE. I hope I am saving someone from making a bad decision.

The professors do not care if you understand anything. Some professors in intro classes state at the beginning of class that they know that you may never have taken the class before like programming, but they will teach the course as if you have. They just expect you to learn it on your own or fail the class. Go somewhere where they care about undergraduate engineers. Otherwise you will end up with a low GPA and they will fail you out of school and you will not be able to get a degree anywhere.

Prospective students, this school is what you make of it. There are so many clubs and organizations to join, you just have to take the time to seek them out. The people who have enjoyed their time at VT were the ones who were most involved in extracurricular activities.

I am a mechanical engineer graduating in May 2014 and found a job in October. I also have many friends who have multiple job offers in the fall semester. VT serves up companies on a silver platter, but again, you have to go out and put your name out there. Those who struggle to get jobs are the people who aren't putting in the effort for the job hunt. Career services equips you with all the tools you need to get a job.

I will say that there were many times I felt overwhelmed by school work, but somehow found a way to get it done. I believe that is part of VT's mission for its students. They find your limits and push them just to show you how capable you really are, which is why companies love hiring VT grads, they know we like the challenge. I would say just about every engineering major would agree with this statement. Other majors, sorry, I can't provide much insight other than that you'll have a lot more free time than I did.

Bottom line: great school, awesome people, great faculty. Football is a way of life, we take that pretty seriously. The opportunities are endless, you just have to go after them. If you do that, you'll love this school just as much as I do. Hope this helps.
