Live the Aspirations

Living the Experience isn’t a final destination; rather, it means you’ve garnered an in-depth understanding of the Aspirations for Student Learning and are fully embracing what they mean to you. This is a journey, one that will launch you into life post-graduation, as you’re discovering the true interweaving of learning beyond the classroom.

This phase asks the “why” as you experience VT.

  • Why do you invest in the organizations and activities you do?
  • Why do the Aspirations matter to you personally?
  • Why are you the person you’ve become?
  • Why do you strive toward the dreams you dream?

To fully Live means you have an in-depth understanding and appreciation of the Aspirations for Student Learning, and that you are serving in leadership and mentorship roles that help other students discover the aspirations and define their own Virginia Tech Experience.
