Virginia Tech Destination Areas

Virginia Tech announced Monday its five “destination areas” with a goal of changing the way students experience college. The school plans to put an initial $2.6 million into the plan next year. Students are scheduled to begin participating in the new system in 2018. Simply put, the university will offer a voluntary educational path in which students can take core classes but also pursue multiple, cross-disciplinary opportunities. Tech will have five town hall meetings to discuss the “destination areas” planned for Tech’s campus. The meetings will be held at the Graduate Life Center. The town halls will also be streamed
