Football fans cheer on the Hokies.
Here's how that competition came to be. Virginia Tech was founded in 1872 as a land-grant institution and was named Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College. In 1896, the Virginia General Assembly officially changed the college's name to Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College and Polytechnic Institute, a name so long that people shortened it in popular usage to VPI.

This is funny to me

My Granddaughter's Boyfriend's family is moving to West Virginia in a
couple of months, and she (my Granddaughter) is moving up to West
Virginia to go to college there along with her boyfriend. Her BFs family
said she could stay with them while they're in School.

MUSC is not a part of USC. We have our own medical school, thank you very much.

Do people call it USC or SC?

USC and SC are both trade marked by Southern California. I get confused often when people are talking football and say USC. I've heard USC-e and USC-jr. I think just saying South Carolina will be best?..

When singing the alma mater (i think), everyone puts up their thumb and pinky like "surfs up". What does that stand for/meaning behind it? Columbia isn't at the beach so I thought I would ask here.

Thank you in advanced!

This guy must still be butt hurt that Austin Clark chose USC over the pokies.

You probably are better off to just stay in Virginia. If you can't figure out that
U S C stands for University of South Carolina and S C is for South Carolina. USC is not a Tech school ( Virgina Tech ) its a University.

WTH does this mean? VT is a university not a tech school. Virginia polytechnic institute and state university.
