Around newman library
Showing you the outside of Newman Library. One of the many places to study on-campus. During finals week, Newman Library is open 24/7, so you can definitely stay there all day and night to study (and sleep), only if you are lucky enough to find a spot in there.
The tallest building in town; slusher hall
My freshman year dorm!!! Unfortunately, I am unable to show you the inside. Every dorm on campus requires the student to swipe their Student ID in order to enter, and the card reader on every dorm's doors know whether you live there or not.Slusher Hall is divided into two parts; Slusher Tower and Slusher Wing. The Wing is a 3 story structure, starting on the second floor and going up to the fourth floor. The Tower is the tallest building in Blacksburg, 12 stories high. Don't listen to those who haven't lived in Slusher Hall, it is actually a really nice dorm with really nice views and tons of cabinet and storage space for all your clothes and necessities (a lot more cabinets than other dorms on campus). If you live high enough, you can watch the sun rise on the east and the sun set on the west.
Check out the duck pond - "one of the most scenic places on campus!"
Artificially created in the mid-'30s, the Duck Pond is home to a variety of wildlife species. Waterfowl include Canada geese, mallard ducks, and Muscovy ducks. The pond is inhabited by common carp, redbreast sunfish, mosquito fish, white suckers, black bullheads, and other fish released into it. Each spring, the College of Natural Resources and Environment stages an informal fishing tournament.
Duck pond, with actual ducks
Beware, aside from the friendly ducks, there is a lot of poop in the grass! This is honestly one of my favorite places on campus. Whether it's from taking a stroll down the path, walking around with a significant other, or just enjoying a nice view of the water, this area on campus always distresses me from studio, work, and extra-curricular activities.This is also a very popular place to go on a first date. Rumor has it if a couple goes here on a first date and are lucky enough, they get married at War Memorial Chapel (also on campus)!
McComas Hall is one of the two gyms on campus. With an indoor pool, indoor track, basketball courts, Zumba, yoga, cycling, this three-leveled gym has more than enough options and activities for you to get fit.
Taren shows you "the most iconic classroom at virginia tech" - mcbryde 100
Most students who have attended Virginia Tech in recent years have probably had a class in McBryde 100.
Upper quad...home of the cadets
The Upper Quad is where most of the Cadets live. What is Virginia Tech Corp of Cadets (VTCC)? VTCC is the military component of the student body, they go through training, hae strict dress codes, must be in their dorms at certain times, etc.Considering Virginia Tech is in the mountains, this Quad is probably the most flattest and most leveled piece of land on campus!
Torgersen bridge and pylons
Probably some of the two most iconic structures on campus are Torgersen Bridge and the Pylons. Torgersen Bridge is an actual building that spans over a road (Alumni Mall), and serves as a quiet study area and the location to recieve all the software packages your program/classes need and also allows you to rent cameras and GoPros for free! The Pylons is above War Memorial Chapel and represents Virginia Tech's 8 core values; Brotherhood, Honor, Leadership, Sacrifice, Service, Loyalty, Duty, and Ut Prosim. In the center is a marble-block cenotaph with all of Virginia Tech's Seven Medal of Honor Recipients. At night, lights are casted on to each of the 8 Pylons. The Pylons is also a great place to get a great view of the Drillfield and sunsets.
Showing you patton hall
This hall is literally one of the cutest and most charming buildings on campus. Originally a building meant for offices, this hall was converted into the Civil Engineering Building. The wood framing around the doors and windows and a nook area to sit, this building maintains it's old character even in Virginia Tech's rapidly expanding campus.
Walking above the road...through torgersen bridge
Floatin above Alumni Mall, and connecting Torgersen Hall and Newman Library, Torgersen Bridge is an iconic building on Virginia Tech's Campus. Inside the bridge is a huge quiet study area with tons of tables and individual nooks with computers. At one end of the bridge, you can pick up all your software needs for your classes, and on the other end of the bridge is where you can rent cameras and GoPros for free!
Litton reaves auditorium
You may or may not have class here, but unlike other auditoriums on campus, this one is open to any student organizations to reserve for free! There is a stage, curtain, projector, and about 200 seats in the audience.Because this is also one of the few places on campus with a stage, it is a really good place to reserve and practice if you want to have practice stage time before a performance (only if you are apart of a student organization that can reserve rooms).
Virginia Tech Burruss Hall
Sneaking into burruss auditorium
The biggest auditorium in Virginia Tech holds about 3000 seats. It's usually not this dark in there, but that's because I wasn't suppose to be in there (the back door was open so I decided to show you guys the space). From concerts, to lectures, to Culture Shows, to graduations, etc. this auditorium can be used for anything!
