Guys & Girls:
The girls are mean and rude and most of the guys suck.

We are treated well. The students don't support some sports though.

no drinking or parting on campus, no smoking inside dorms, no pets aloud

I have not had the chance to live in off campus housing because I am just a freshman. So I cannot fairly grade this question.

VI has all the core classes that you must have. They also have a large variety of different classes to offer as well. The number of students at VI calls for smaller numbers of students in the classroom. I believe I learn more because of the small numbers in the classrooms. More one on one time with teachers, professors and advisors.

I am an Equine Major. The professors and instructions are so very helpful and easy to work with. They push you to be your very best in the class room and out!

I'm really not sure how to respond to this. Not sure that VI has "Greek life." Everybody goes to everybody's parties, etc.

I'm heading into my second semester at VI. There has been some snow there, but not enough to cancel classes.

Not a lot of students that I come in contact with a Virginia Intermont partake in drugs.

I really like Virginia Intermont's small community atmosphere. It is nice to be at a place where I am not just another face or number, but the other students and teachers actually know everyone. I love being a part of the schools intercollegiate horseback riding team, while also being able to balance school, classes, homework and social activities. It is very comforting to have a group of close friends for support.

I have not done a specific internship with the school but I am currently working as an assistant trainer for a horse business. This has given me a lot of helpful experience pertaining to my field which is not extremely common.
College Junior 2012-09-29T03:11:04Z
I have enjoyed being a part of the business program at Virginia Intermont. The class size is small so i am able to have a lot of attention as an individual. I have very good instructors who are willing to help me in any way they can. The workload is challenging, but easily doable if you use time wisely. There are many internship opportunities as you get to an upperclassman level.
College Junior 2012-09-29T03:05:43Z
So far I am happy with my program and major of choice (Business Management). I have only completed one year of college and I am getting a lot of general credits done, along with some business credits. I hope to someday start my own horse training business. I am not very worried about finding a job, as I already have one as an assistant trainer. However I am worried about having the financial backing to eventually start my own business. So for right now i would not do anything over and I would continue on the path I am going.
College Junior 2012-09-29T03:00:56Z
The process of declaring a business major at my school was pretty simple. The application process to get into the school however was very unique and shows the character of each student. To get into the business major I took classes that would count as credits to my major and then complete the list given to me once i decided and declared. I talked to an adviser to help me get on the right tract toward my goal.

Willing to Help You – If you decide to come to VI and not sure you can afford it, they are very willing to work with you and try to help you get everything that you need to make it possible to get you at this school. THey will try to find scholarships for you and the government aid is decent. Work study can sometimes be hard to come by and they are very stringent on not going over your hours, but that's the only bad thing.

IF you want diversity VI is definitely the place for you. I have gotten friends from all over the world and not a day goes by when you won't meet someone from a different part of the world or the country. Everyone at VI is exteremly welcoming and if you feel threatened at all by other students, VI has a no tolerance policy that is strictly enforced by everyone, RA's, Faculty, staff, and administration. The diversity at VI is one of its best aspects.

VI is a small campus and parking can usually be found in any of the parking lots and off-campus with a less than five minute walk to class. The cost to park on campus isn't awful, but make sure you don't park in any spaces you aren't supposed to be because fines can add up quickly and are super expensive. Definitely do not need a car on campus, it's so small the entire campus is less than a ten minute walk from one end to the other. and if you want to get to North campus, the barn, you can almost always find a ride with another student.

Old, but Trying – VI is a very historical campus, so sometimes it is hard to keep the dorms in tip-top shape. However, all the dorms are spacious compared to other campuses that I looked at and Main/West have a historical feel to them that is very nice.
THe resident assistants try to keep a social atmosphere in the dorms and engage in several social gatherings throughout the year to keep people involved and entertained. The cost is reasonable for a private college, but you are required to have a meal plan if you live on campus, though there is some flexibitly on what you can choose.
For the most part the housing process is relatively uneventful and goes smoothly. Always a little harder for freshman but once you've been through it once it makes it a lot easier.

A Melting Pot Together – At VI we have students from all over the globe, many on the athletic teams and Equestrian, we have a very diverse campus, it is no surprise to sit at the dinner table and learn of another's customs and background. This melting pot type of student body is part of our strong community.

The Facilities at Virginia Intermont is good, they get things done, but because of the small community that we share, the facilities aren't able to be state of the art and do not compare to high ranking Universities, but to combat that students don't intend them to be. Students don't go to VI because of what dorms we offer, what technologies we have, or because what facilities can do for them. They go because what they find in the VI community cannot be matched.

Here at VI we have an amazing Security and Residence Life team. They are not officers, but our fellow classmates and human, they become your friends as you respect them they respect you. Being a part of the Residence Life team I can say we are not out for the students, we don't want to bust them at every corner. We are out to help them and to make their experience at VI one they take with them, one they can sit and remember. Strictness only happens when needed.

VI Community – Virginia Intermont is small, we don't have fancy things, our technology isnt the most up to date, we don't have big dorms, fancy organizations, but what we do have is a community. A chance for students to earn their voice. When a student comes to VI its not about what other schools have, your not walking in with a number. You are coming to VI with your name, with who you are. Our small environment makes VI what it is. Professors, faculty, and staff know your name, they greet you in the halls, ask questions about your background and life. The big thing, They CARE. At VI you become part of the community. You become a part of what VI is. Students make the transition from high school to college life easily, they are cared for and they are a person. Each professor comes to class with the intent on making that day about the students, on making that day the day they pass something on. And in that process the students pass on what they know. VI isn't about what we don't have, it about what we can offer, and what we can offer is a college experience to those who want it. To those who are willing to become part of the VI community and call themselves Cobras. We hold ourself in high expectations, and though VI each student has the chance to find their voice, discover their passion, and become part of the Cobra community. We are VI

All of the professors are interested in your personal success and are there to help. Most of the professors introduce themselves by first name, and that is how it is all over campus, you know them and they know you, even if you aren't in a class with them. Classes are small and in depth. All of the professors are fun and engaging for the most part and are there for your benefit. I wouldn't want it any other way.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
