Ut Prosim: That I may serve. 

This motto embodies the educational and community foundations of Virginia Tech.  We celebrate our military veterans, in particular, for their exemplary service to the nation and their daily contributions to the university.  We are committed to supporting veterans' integration into academic and professional lives at Virginia Tech by providing support networks and a central resource for veterans' information on campus and in the local community.

Welcome to Virginia Tech. We look forward to serving you.
