Virginia Tech has had some upsetting events in the past that may have hindered the diversity of the school. Of the two land-grant universities in Virginia, Virginia Tech is the historically white university and seems to be having somewhat of a difficult time overcoming this reputation. However, diversity at Tech is greatly increasing. While demographically more than 70 percent of the student body is white, it doesn’t always appear that way around campus. Dozens of races and ethnicities attend Tech, and students are generally very accepting of the diversity around them.
The majority of Virginia Tech students are white, but many other ethnicities are represented and seem to mix into the student body well, with very little tension. In the past, Tec hasn’t had the best reputation regarding diversity, but the school is making a conscious effort to promote diversity, in all aspects. Cultural demonstrations, such as the International Street Fair that showcases food, dance, and art from nations all around the world, are put on all throughout the year, and with clubs like the Asian American Student Union, LGBTA, and the Hindu Student Council, students have the opportunity to get involved and represent any demographic group they choose.
