Committed to Excellence
Virginia Tech takes a hands-on, engaging approach to education, preparing scholars to be leaders in their fields and communities. As the Commonwealth of Virginia’s most comprehensive university and research institution, Virginia Tech offers 250 undergraduate and graduate degree programs serving over 33,000 students. Through a combination of its three missions of learning, discovery, and engagement, Virginia Tech continually strives to accomplish its motto Ut Prosim (That I May Serve). The Quality of Life Plus Program shares Virginia Tech’s strong commitment to service and is proud to count its selfless students and talented faculty as part of the QL+ Family.
For the 2018-2019 school year, QL+ meetings will be held every Tuesday at 6:30pm in Goodwin 155. Students from all majors and years are encouraged to join!
Meeting times will be used to get to know challengers in the community, work on designing and creating projects, learning new skills through workshops from various professors, as well as getting to know fellow Hokies who share a desire for serving others! In order to participate in QL+, commitment to your semester-long project is expected.
QL+ offers a unique opportunity to gain both leadership and service experience by working in a group and having the option to become a team leader or executive board member while serving our local Blacksburg community.
