Virginia Tech is awesome. Nobody but yourself can keep you from having a great experience there. There are tons of student help programs, free tutors, and other kinds of help resources. If you want to do well then they will do everything they can to help you. Some of the faculty are a bit cocky or distant, but I've always enjoyed my lectures and they have a nice variety of subjects. The library is phenomenal and if you take the time to get familiar with it and it's capabilities you'll never want for information. The student health center is great, most of anything is free there, and their two fitness facilities are very nice. The on campus cafe has it's own pastry chef and other dinning halls on campus are some of the best in the country. There's a bus system that's free for student which is great, everyone rides it at some point, and it goes around campus, to the different appartment complexes, and even to the mall and Walmrt. If you're thinking about Tech I strongly urge you to visit it and take a tour. The only thing is that the biggest city around it Roanoke and that's forty-five minutes away, but the school has great sports and performing arts so it isn't quite so bad. So if you can survive without a big mall or extensive galleries for more than a couple of weeks you'll love it there. One more thing… VTech is one of two schools in the country that has a corps of cadets and civilian students. The corps people are alright, most of them are just like anybody else, except for being in really good shape and having curfews. Plus, every year at the first big snowfall there's a massive snowball fight between the corps and civies that spans about two football fields. It's lovely.
