A Virginia Tech student is highly motivated, innovative, and tremendously spirited. Virginia Tech is always offering research opportunities and grants to students. Motivated, innovative students take advantage of this potential experience and as a result are able to have unique, valuable learning experiences that prepare and inspire them in their future careers. The Blacksburg community takes as much pride in Virginia Tech as the students themselves and welcomes incoming students with open arms. Incoming students should embrace the community that Blacksburg offers and explore the community itself. Because the typical VT student is tremendously spirited and the Blacksburg community is so active within the school, students, as a result, are very involved both on and off of campus.
