Founded in 1872 as a land-grant college named Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College, Virginia Tech is now a comprehensive, innovative research university with the largest full-time student population in Virginia. Located at Blacksburg, Virginia, the school is Virginia's largest university with 25,000+ students and one of the top 50 research institutions in the nation, it is an institution that firmly embraces a history of putting knowledge to work. That tradition is rooted in our motto, Ut Prosim: "That I May Serve," and our land-grant missions of instruction, research, and solving the problems of society through public service and outreach activities. Our eight colleges (agriculture, architecture, arts/sciences, business, human resources/education, engineering, natural resources, and veterinary medicine) offer more degree programs than any other university in the state with 60 undergraduate and 140 graduate programs. Virginia Tech is one of the nation's leaders in developing and using new instructional technologies. The schools athletic department known as The Hokies, has brought the college national attention. Virginia Tech is one of two universities in the country that offers the combined advantages of a military-style leadership development program and a traditional academic and social life through the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets.
