    Pros

    Virginia Tech is an amazing school located in this amazing college town. Every thing is really cheap and CoED friendly. Lots of opportunities for students to grow professionally.

    Cons

    4 hours out from Northern Virginia and 5 hours from my home in Maryland. But If you have car you can make the drive home or use the really awesome VT carpool facebook page.

    Advice to Management

    Not applicable in this case. Great team of staff in the Electrical engineering building.
