ExperienceVT

Hokies are committed to serve, learn, and lead in communities near and far. The paths look different, but every Virginia Tech student and graduate drops little breadcrumbs throughout their journeys, linking them back to this university.

This blog is a place to hold the stories of the sending out and to tell of the breadcrumbs linking back home. Through the stories of our alumni, our students, and our community, we're going to tell the story of the Virginia Tech experience, in all its diverse, unique, and cohesive beauty.

We invite you to ExperienceVT.

Coming to college is a transition for all new students, but students who identify with underrepresented populations often wonder, “Is there anything at Virginia Tech for me?” The answer is a resounding yes!

The Virginia Tech student body is composed of many cultures, ethnicities, orientations, worldviews, personal journeys, economic statuses, and religions, and there are hundreds of student organizations on campus focused on diversity and awareness. Each year, various cultural education programs are offered, and students are encouraged to take academic courses that will foster an understanding of cultural differences.

InclusiveVT is the institutional and individual commitment to Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) in the spirit of community, diversity, and excellence. It’s all the work and spirit behind efforts to enhance the climate of inclusivity to the Virginia Tech community and beyond.

Principles of Community

We even have entire departments dedicated to promoting inclusive learning, such as Cultural and Community Centers and Cranwell International Center.
