Major: Building Construction concentrating in Virtual Design Construction

Hometown: Richmond, VA.

I am a Junior here at Virginia Tech, in my second year of Building Construction with a concentration in Virtual Design. After studying Biology for a year, I realized that I was looking for a major with a combination of things such as management, team building, new challenges, and a job that would be different every day. I looked around at many different majors here, and found Building Construction and took a leap of faith. I've been loving the program ever since I switched. I've been able to work in smaller class settings, face new challenges, and be supported not only by our teachers/staff but industry professionals as well. When I am not in the classroom, I take part in a service sorority called Chi Delta Alpha, and I play on Virginia Techs Women's Club Water Polo.

I didn’t expect to find myself in construction, but I couldn’t be happier with where I am. Teachers, staff, and the companies want you to learn as much as you can and are more than willing to help one another out.
