Overview

In early October 1872, Charles Minor opened a small land-grant institution, consisting of 29 students, 3 faculty members, and a single building, in the town of Blacksburg, Virginia. Now, 130 years later, the once small agricultural college is recognized as Virginia's largest university-Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Out of its humble beginning of donated livestock, seeds, machinery, and books, Virginia Tech has emerged as a leading research university that is consistently ranked as one of the nation's top engineering and business schools. The university is also home to a tremendous athletic program that continually produces many of the nation's top ranked athletes. Today, Virginia Tech also serves as a major economic engine for the economy of Southwestern Virginia. The Campus History Series: Virginia Tech illustrates the university's emergence through over 200 archival photographs, including images that capture the essence of student life, featuring happenings such as the old cadet rat parades, the first ring dance, the Highty-Tighties, the Huckleberry, sports events, and even the evolution of the school's mascot, the Hokie Bird.
