Once you get your PID, it’s never too early to discover your Strengths. Check out the StrengthsFinder assessment to learn more about your gifts and talents. Make note of your top five—we love strengths here at Virginia Tech, so you’ll be talking about them a lot!

We structure everything we do off of our Aspirations for Student Learning. Throughout your time at Virginia Tech, you’ll discover these five Aspirations and create your Keystone Experience. It’s our hope that, come graduation, you’ll leave with more knowledge of yourself and the world around you, thanks to the Aspirations and your Keystone Experience.
