Contrary to popular belief (by belief I mean rumors spread by faggy UVa students) the student body does not consist of rednecks, VT doesn't take just anyone. The student body mostly come from middle class families and are generally pretty smart. They don't fuck animals (another completly retarded rumor) unless by "fuck animals" you mean "party like crazy".
Virginia Tech: Good food, good football, cool people, good academics, good parties, and lots of shool spirit.
In short, the place you want to be if you want to be successful in life while having fun along the way.
