Fodor's Review

With more than 30,000 students at its nine colleges and graduate school, Virginia Tech is the state's largest university. A small college just a few decades ago, Tech is now known for top-notch research programs and its Hokies football team, regularly ranked in the top 10. The focal point of the sprawling campus is the Drillfield, a vast green space surrounded by hefty neo-Gothic buildings built of what is known locally as "Hokie Stone" masonry.

The Virginia Museum

of Natural History at Virginia Tech presents rotating exhibits on local and national wildlife; a separate geology museum in Derring Hall displays gems and minerals. 428 N. Main St., 24061. 540/231–3001.
