The goal of the new Drillfield Master Plan is to preserve the beauty of the area while making it a more usable space. In addition to addressing the pathways, the master plan will address significant changes to the field turf, seating opportunities, crosswalks and lighting, improved amenities (including wi-fi), and landscaping.

smART Field Project

On May 1, 2017, students, employees, and community members were invited to stop by the Moss Arts Center to learn more about how Virginia Tech researchers are re-imaging the future of the university’s iconic Drillfield at the center of campus.

The goal of the project is to amplify the Drillfield’s traditional function as an immersive, responsive, and reflective heart of the campus.
