What is Women’s Preview Weekend?

Women’s Preview Weekend (WPW) provides an opportunity to visit the campus and make an informed decision about attending the college at Virginia Tech.  During Preview Weekend, students meet current students and faculty and get a first-hand look at Virginia Tech and the College of Engineering.
