Let’s be Real, you want to always know inside Jokes. Inside Jokes exist anywhere among your family group to your college friends. But what if I told you that there are GIANT INSIDE THINGS that only Hokies Knew. If you have not heard of Virginia Tech before Applying and know absolutely nothing about it… It’s AIGHT. Don’t panic. I got you. Here are 10 Things You Will Know if You Go to Virginia Tech!
1. UT Prosim (That I may Serve) is a LIFESTYLE
UT PROSIM IS BLACKSBURG. UT PROSIM IS VIRGINIA TECH. UT PROSIM IS HOKIES.
“When these missions are considered in light of their motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), the true character of Virginia Tech can be understood. Being a Hokie is not a passive or a disengaged act. The active discovery of knowledge followed by (or paired with) its dissemination is central to the Hokie missions.” –iss.vt.edu
2. WHAT IS A HOKIE?
3. Enter Sandman – METALLICA
IF YOU HEAR THE SONG, DON’T QUESTION IT. JUST JUMP.
4. IF YOU HEAR LET’S GO!
At 8AM in the morning(Probably not), 7PM in the Evening, or 2AM in the Morning, you answer with HOKIES!
5. Drillfield is a “must avoid” during Winter
Blacksburg during winter can be terrifying. Especially when you have 8AM and HAVE to go across the Drillfield. Drillfield is somehow angled so that the wind comes and hits you like a tidal wave. Avoid if you can…If Not… GOOD LUCK SOLDIER.
6. Chicken Parm Day
Wednesday has to be one of my favorite days. Chicken Parm with Pasta will be served in Owens Hall!!!!!! It’s honestly so good. Chicken Parm is SOOO LIT. Definitely not candle Lit, but SUN LIT. If you want to enjoy the Wednesday to its full extent, EAT Chicken Parm LOL.
7. TURNER IS NOT FOR LUNCH
Turner has QDOBA, BREUGGER’S BAGEL, JAMBA JUICE, ORIGAMI, AND EVERYTHING. It’s super chill yeah…. NOT DURING 11AM – 2PM DOE. West End is less crowded during lunch time. Pick your dining halls wisely at right times or…You will suffer…
8. GOOD MORNING CADETS
Man FO REAL DOE. Cadet life is pretty serious. “As a cadet you will attend morning formation, required of all cadets, Monday through Friday, when the Colors(our National Flag) rise at 7:30am.” (AND IM HERE COMPLANING ABOUT 10AM CLASSES…) God Bless America!
You need to understand UVA vs. VTech Rivalry!! This rivalry has a long tradition but when it comes to football…It’s not much of a rivalry. Check out some good UVA Jokes Here!! http://www.qsl.net/wa4yha/wahoo1.html
“Johnny says to his mom: I want to be a Wahoo when I grow up.
– Mom: But Johnny, you can’t do both.”
10. THIS IS HOME
You Will miss your home. But do not fret! Virginia Tech has several Awesome Mottos and one of the best one is “This is Home”. Your 1st Semester at Tech might not necessarily make you feel like it’s your home, but soon enough, you will embrace the Hokie Spirit and Hokie Culture.
WE ARE FAMILY. THIS IS HOME!
Do you know all of them? Do you know at least most of them? Oh well, Looks like you are ready to be a Virginia Tech Hokie!! Embrace the culture and share the Love around the campus. Sharing is Caring! #GOKIES #MAROON&ORANGE #INVENTTHEFUTURE
