BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Virginia Tech had a record-breaking number of prospective students and their families visit the Blacksburg campus in 2019.
According to VT, more than 50,000 people visited the university, a 58 percent increase since 2007.
A campus visit gives prospective students a chance to experience for themselves what the school has to offer, including learning about specific majors, a statement from the school said.
Campus tours and undergraduate admissions information sessions happen throughout the week, making the university more available to students and their families.
In contrast, previously campus visits were limited to the weekend, where admissions could only accommodate 100 people each day, according to VT.
“We know that once people set foot on campus, they can imagine themselves here, so we’re extremely pleased that so many prospective students and their families are coming to see for themselves,” said Juan Espinoza, director of Undergraduate Admissions.
