Academically Excellent, Beautiful Campus, Welcoming and Supportive
Tips: VT campus in Blacksburg is academically oriented with excellent curriculum. Students aiming to study and focus on their master's degree might find this place perfectly suitable. I can’t think of any disadvantages of the campus unless you want a city life. Also, it would be great if students can apply before deadlines and acquire some assistantship since there are ample opportunities.
Likes (Student Life): Blacksburg is absolutely beautiful, on top of that the campus is gorgeous surrounded with college buildings, it’s a scenic park everywhere. Students can always choose flexible courses and manage studies with part time and outings on weekends if they are good at time management.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): Virginia Tech has one of the biggest career fair events in the country. I find it convenient for students to find a company that can sponsor visa since there are many options available. Of course it’s always the student's choice if they are willing to find companies without sponsorship.
