"They're not going to let me in."

In my mind I would have said "They're not going to search me."

Police at Virginia Tech are sworn law enforcement officers, and therefore would need probable cause or permission to search my person. They would have neither.

IANAL.

But, doesn't your acceptance of the license to be part of the event at that venue grant permission for them to search you? This is true at many sporting events and concerts. You have a right not to be searched. But, then, you can't go in to the event.
