      • Sep 06, 2018 An Interview with Nathan Latka

        It isn’t every day that a multi-million dollar CEO takes time out of their busy schedule for an interview with the Virginia Tech Student Affairs communications team. But Nathan Latka isn’t your typical CEO… nor is he a typical Hokie. And the ExperienceVT blog isn’t the “normal” blog… because we don’t believe “normal” exists. Through the stories of our students, our alumni, and our community, the ExperienceVT blog exists to tell the story of the Virginia Tech experience—in all its diverse, unique, and cohesive beauty.

      • Aug 09, 2018 Opportunities

        n life, we’re often faced with opportunities disguised as choices. Sometimes these opportunities have the potential to change our entire lives without us having any idea of the impact it could have on our life. I was an 18-year-old who was convinced that I was going to work in the aerospace industry. If you had asked me as a freshman what I was going to do, I would have told you that I was going to help colonize Mars. As I now understand, things happen and your plans don’t generally work out the way you want them to, but it took many unexpected turns for me to realize this.

        This past academic year I experienced a large amount of hardships and was overwhelmed with feelings of being lost, alone, and unmotivated. I had no interest in staying home in Texas for the summer and was fortunate enough to find an internship with Student Affairs, allowing me to stay in Blacksburg.

      • Jul 10, 2018 Helping others feel good in their own skin

        During my freshman year, body image was never something I used to discuss. It wasn’t something I thought about, when in reality, it was constantly being engrained into my mind to think and look a certain way. Society has a way of pushing photos of women in other women’s faces that make you feel like if you aspire to look like that, you will be happy, rich, successful, and invincible. It’s something that isn’t talked about because it’s embarrassing and hush hush-- until it’s not.
