Radford nearby, blacksburg is a college town and is the main attraction here but it's great.

VT footballl!!! Nice gym, great people, and a lot of things to do.
College Junior 2013-12-05T23:26:39Z
Various student centers to hang out in and work in, large library and math emporium to study in.
College Junior 2013-12-05T23:25:26Z
A lot of different religious backgrounds, sexual orientations, political affiliations, etc.
College Junior 2013-12-05T23:24:05Z
Lots of bars and restaurants in dt blacksburg. Not the best variety but fun for a college student.

You'll get a parking ticket if you don't have the right permit.
College Junior 2013-12-05T23:21:21Z
The buses are constantly running and go pretty much everywhere you need to go.

Haven't applied for any financial aid because I can't get any.

Health & Safety:
Pretty safe on campus, a lot of stereotypes about tech but they just aren't true. Safe place to be.

Guys & Girls:
Besides VMI or an all-boys school, Tech has the highest % of guys that go here. It's really awesome if you're a girl or gay guy, because the men here are the best. I'm so serious. There are so many sweet, smart, athletic (we are the most fit school!) guys at VA Tech. If you're male, don't let that deter you; there are lots of bromances, and plenty of girls to go around.
But really, best boyfriend pickens around

VT Police have never given me crap about anything, and I've been drunk on campus a few times. They really are just looking out to make sure you're being safe. Blacksburg police, however, are alot more strict.
College Sophomore 2013-12-04T02:26:20Z
Health & Safety:
There are emergency phones everywhere, and the police are normally on campus, though they never bust anyone for drinking or anything like that. The campus police are just looking out for if anything bad happens. There are free rape defense classes and other things like that. Although everyone knows Tech for the massacre, those who go here know it's pretty safe. You could leave your laptop somewhere for hours and it will probably be there when you get back.

There are alot of drug safety programs, and clubs dedicated to "partying positive." A good amount of people drink... I mean it's college, what do you expect? But staying sober will NOT outcast you. Second most common is probably weed, though it's not huge, or study drugs. Since we're by farmland shrooms are fairly common as well
College Sophomore 2013-12-04T02:16:24Z
I'm from Richmond, where things are really diverse, and I think people are too harsh with Tech. There are alot of white and asian people here, but it's mixed up enough. There is a moderately large gay community from what I've been told (my roommate is gay, and says there is alot going on with it.) I'd say it's a fair mix with political views, and alot of middle class background. It's probably mainly Christian religion here, though it definietly doesn't dominate anything. I've met more Jewish, Buddhist, and Muslim people here than back home.

I'm not in Greek life, but alot of people I know are. It's not really a big deal if you are or aren't. The Greeks here aren't really snobby, especially compared to the bunch in the college near my hometown. There are also service/social fraternities, which are pretty cool
College Sophomore 2013-12-04T01:55:48Z
There are busstops by most off-campus housing. It takes me maybe 10 minutes on the bus to get to class. I could walk too if I wanted to
College Sophomore 2013-12-04T01:54:33Z
Downtown Blacksburg is awesome. Living in a college town is an experience I'd definitely recommend.
College Sophomore 2013-12-04T01:53:25Z
The blacksburg transit is pretty awesome. It runs all the time. Also, people always post on the VT page offering rides home if you're willing to chip in gas money. I don't have a car and I don't need one.
College Sophomore 2013-12-04T01:52:00Z
Being in the mountains, there is a fair amount of wind and snow.I don't really like the cold, but I tolerate it to be here at Tech. If you bundle up in rainboots and scarves, you'll fare just fine. And if you like building snowmans, this place is for you!

Since on-campus food is so good, off-campus restaurants have to really step it up. And it works. I spend so much on food, just because I love going out. My favorite place is probably a Mediterranean place walking distance from campus. Late-night is probably this pizza place called Benny's; the pizza is new york style, and a piece of pizza is bigger than my head.
College Sophomore 2013-12-04T01:47:19Z
Virginia Tech students are SPOILED with the food here. There are so many options, and so much to eat. I'm a vegetarian, but my choices definitely aren't limited. And if you have a meal plan, everything is 50% off, which is really awesome
College Sophomore 2013-12-04T01:44:33Z
There are a good amount of scholarships
College Sophomore 2013-12-04T01:43:33Z
Dude, I love this school. There are alot of really smart people here, so don't think it's only a party school; however, there are awesome parties always. If you don't have plans, you can pretty much just go to certain off-campus houses or apartments and you'll find a party. People will charge guys to drink normally, but nobody is ever really denied from a party.

I'm not in Greek life, but my roomie from last year is in Kappa and she LOVES IT. Rushing is a stressful process so I won't ever do it, but if you're into that stuff then it's totally worth it. You can live on Oak Lane in cute houses or you can live wherever you want although they want you to live in the houses because... well someone has to pay for the houses. If you're a boy then you might live in a gross frat house that's infested with STDs, but hey, you chose to do that.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
