Virginia Tech is a wonderful university tucked into the Blue Ridge Mountains. Though it's known for engineering and more science related fields, I must admit the History department is phenomenal and highly underrated. The professors are incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable; I have yet to meet a single one of which I was not a fan. The classes are small enough that most professors get to know you on a first name basis, which is wonderful for applying to grad school and finding research opportunities. The campus is beautiful with its Gothic architecture and relatively compact. Sports and the Hokies are a huge part of student life and spirit is high around campus. Greek life is evident on campus; however, everyone is really friendly and there doesn't seem to be a lot of mean hazing. Plus, they're really acceptable to non-Greeks. Most students come from NOVA, Maryland, and New Jersey, therefore they find the town of Blacksburg really boring. This school has a small downtown nightlife with local bars, such as TOTS. When the weather is warmer, hiking, tubing on the New River, and outdoor activities in general are superb. If you get involved, you'll love Blacksburg and never want to leave!
