Virginia Tech is truly amazing. The people are down to earth, yet have a desire to succeed and tend to study together. The professors that I've had my first year are all wonderful, and they truly make an effort to get to know you on an individual basis.

The Engineering department at Tech is second to none. Engineering Fundamentals (2 semesters) is very challenging yet rewarding, and I feel I have been given a very good overview of different engineering disciplines, ethics, and everything it takes to become an engineer.

Blacksburg is the perfect college town for me. I hate traffic and lots of commotion, but Blacksburg has clubs, restaurants, movie theaters, and generally things to do without all the hassle of a big city. I love this area of Virginia, and think it's one of the most beautiful places in America. It's certainly a nice change from my home state's university: Rutgers.

The cost of VT is also very reasonable, and I have found that even though freshmen typically don't receive exceptional financial aid, from sophomore to senior year, students get quite a few scholarships.

I truly don't think there is a better Engineering college in America regarding cost, academic quality, students, and surroundings.
