*CG locator Blacksburg

Those vanity tags are actually
the most popular college plates in the
Commonwealth.

Sales were so high, the D-M-V
recently cut a check to the university
for 214-thousand dollars.


That's more than twice the amount
of any of the other 82 schools that
have revenue sharing license plates.

The money even helps Virginia
students.

It funds undergraduate
scholarships.
