      • Dec 12, 2017 A graduating senior reflects on her Virginia Tech experience

        When I began to plan this post I wasn’t sure how to start, because in all honesty I had been so busy finishing the semester and applying to grad school that I hadn’t even thought about the fact that I was graduating. It’s easy to get caught up in everything the university lifestyle has to offer, and I’ve been so distracted that, now that it’s ending, I feel like it all went by really fast.

      • Dec 04, 2017 Service through Sharing the Surplus

        Everyone warned me there would be a lot of food. As I came to the end of my first semester as the graduate assistant for The Campus Kitchen at Virginia Tech, I was coordinating our shifts as the dining facilities closed for the winter break. Working with student volunteers, Campus Kitchen reclaims unserved food from seven campus dining centers that is then distributed through local hunger-relief organizations. In that semester, we would usually see between 100-150 lbs. of food per delivery, including “grab-n-gobble” items, repackaged food that didn’t make it out for service the previous few days, as well as raw ingredients they didn’t end up using.

      • Nov 28, 2017 Email Signatures

        I distinctly remember receiving an email my freshman year that changed the way I thought about myself. I was sitting in my freshman dorm, Peddrew-Yates, diligently scrolling through an email of an older student. I made my way to the bottom of the email, saw her name and underneath it, a list of every single organization she was a part of and every position she had on campus. It was almost as if the list was symbolically propping her name up to mean more to me.

      • Nov 14, 2017 A Unique and Unforgettable Cultural Excursion

        Last year I had the opportunity to be a part of a Cultural Excursion to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. On February 18, 2017, students, faculty, and staff gathered at Squires at 4 o’clock in the morning waiting for the bus to take us to Washington, D.C. One by one, we hopped on the bus ready to take the four-hour long trip. For the first couple of hours the bus was pretty quiet, then everyone began to wake up slowly and discuss what they were anticipating to see at the museum in hushed tones.
