  • Attend an admissions or departmental information session.

  • Inquire about entertainment (plays, concerts, speakers, etc.) or athletic events that are taking place on campus. You can find more information on the Virginia Tech Calendar.
  • Talk with Virginia Tech students you encounter during your visit. Find out why they chose Tech and learn about their experiences as Hokies.
  • Plan to have a meal or snack in one of our award-winning on-campus dining facilities. Be sure to have cash on hand and bring your appetite – menus are available to please every palate.
  • Go exploring! In addition to a tour, make sure you see as much of campus and the surrounding area as possible.
