Embrace Your Awesomeness

strengths

We think you are pretty great already, just because you're a Hokie. At Virginia Tech, we don't talk about our weaknesses. Instead, we focus on our strengths. That's why we are the first university in the nation to offer the CliftonStrengths assessment FREE to all students. Learn about how you work, what you value, and who you are becoming. And don't be surprised if someone asks you about your “top five” once you get to campus!

There are three main student centers on campus—Squires, Johnston, and the Graduate Life Center.

The three student centers are part of Student Engagement and Campus Life, a department in the Division of Student Affairs. This department is committed to the student experience and supports students and student organizations with all their needs from production services and event planning, to leadership and development.

In addition to being the perfect study spot, student centers at Virginia Tech are where you go to buy a ticket for an event, hold student organization group meetings, or just grab coffee with friends. Student Engagement and Campus Life works closely with student organizations on space needs, whether the Student Government Association is holding an awards banquet, VTU and BSA are hosting a concert, or the Quidditch club needs a meeting room.

If visual arts is more your style, stop by the Perspective Gallery on the second floor of Squires.

Bowling? Billiards? Table tennis? All things fun? Hit up BreakZONE, Virginia Tech’s very own recreation and game center. It’s in Squires, too!
