Oh, and no one really cares about the Citadel/Virginia Tech rivalry.
Now lets stop this rediculous rivalry and stop comparing apples to oranges.
~Thats cool, i want to major in business manegment and become an entrepreneur so i will go to UVA.
~Awesome, i respect your decision because we have different tastes in education.
HOKIES ARE NOT FORGOTTEN
*Top notch Engineering program
*Good business school
*#1 campus dining in country
*Respected Football team (good at other sports too but it is a football school)
*No preppy dbags (like UVa)
*Intelligent student body (average gpa for class of '13 was 3.94)
*Alumni have the highest initial salary in Virginia
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".
In short, the place you want to be if you want to be successful in life while having fun along the way.
As a high school senior, I had to choose among a near infinite amount of East coast universities to attend, eventually realizing the greatness that was just an hour down the interstate. They're also pretty selective. I was one of 5,600 freshmen accepted from a pool of over 20,000 applicants in 2008.
-We do have a formidable football team, although many (and myself) could care less if it gets too gung ho.
-(In response to a blatant misconception I heard) We don't fuck the cows here. That's just gross.
-The students here are really chill and easy to hang with. There's something here for everyone.
-Great Engineer and Architecture programs. Even beats, dare I say it, UVA...
-The largest full time student population in Virginia.
-The party scene here is commendable. Plenty of frat and apartment venues to get you pissed on a weekly basis if you desire.
-Guy/Girl ratio is approaching a cool 50/50, up from being slightly more sausage a few years ago. (so no need to fret)
-Totally awesome guy's totally awesome friend:
Good for you! I got accepted into UVa to study business this fall, their program was a big plus to me.
-1st Guy: *friendly jest* Oh yeah? I guess we'll see your team's ass on the gridiron come November you zima-sippin first-year prick.
-Friend: *similar jest* Very funny you cow screwin' hick, why don't you whistle to your quarterback boyfriend through your missing front tooth while you slap the back of your sunburnt neck and spit your chaw!
-1st Guy: .... ummmm, yeahhhh...
-Friend: I went to far didn't I?...
UVA student: "God I hate VT, I would never fit in because I think so high of myself and I would miss mommy and daddy so much (sucks thumb). I heard VT is getting a med school soon. Were really screwed now"
Virginia Tech is the best school in Virginia!
Virginia Tech kid: "Who cares!? Go to tell you're little friends."
