Virginia Tech founded in 1872 as a land-grant college named Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College, is now a comprehensive and innovative research university with the largest number of degree offerings in the commonwealth. It includes more than 125 campus buildings, a 2,600-acre main campus, off-campus educational facilities in six regions, a study-abroad site in Switzerland, and a 1,700-acre agriculture research farm near the main campus. The campus proper is located in the town of Blacksburg in Montgomery County, 38 miles southwest of Roanoke in the New River Valley. Through a combination of its three missions: teaching and learning, research and discovery, and outreach and engagement, Virginia Tech continually strives to accomplish the charge of its motto: Ut prosim (That I may serve).
