Our main campus is in Blacksburg, VA, in a region consistently ranked among the country's best places to live (see some recent regional recognitions: 2021, 2022). Blacksburg is in Montgomery County, which is part of the New River Valley and surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. These videos illustrate the beauty of our region and explain why we like to spend time outdoors:
