"I'm actually the seventh person in my family to come to Virginia Tech, so I already knew it was a great school with a friendly atmosphere. I also knew that the engineering program was very good, and I would have lots of opportunities if I came."

Joshua Partlow (CpE 2005)

"I was impressed with the flexibility of the program. At most schools the classes you can take and the minors you can pursue are very limited. Virginia Tech offers its students the ability to do what they want with their education. I'm currently minoring in creative writing, and will probably also minor in either philosophy or computer science. I also chose Virginia Tech because of the atmosphere and the people. It might sound funny, but Virginia Tech really fits my view of what a college campus should feel like."
