For those that aren’t familiar with this image, that’s Burruss Hall on the right and the reflection of the sky is coming off the dark marble stone atop the War Memorial. It’s a beautiful photo originally posted on Virginia Tech’s official Facebook page.
Earlier today, Virginia Tech’s Facebook page featured a picture of students mingling outside of Newman Library in 1956. A couple of people commented that they’d like to see a comparison of Newman Library then and now. Wish granted!
Newman Library then and now. Not much as changed, really. Love that Hokie stone!
I stopped by Virginia Tech’s new Visitor and Undergraduate Admissions Center this morning to check out the new digs and see how the move was going. It looks like everyone is pretty much moved in and ready to open next week.
The old visitor center (on Southgate Drive) and the Office of Undergraduate Admissions were closed this week while they moved into this beautiful new building that was partly paid for with money from donors.
Today, I actually got to go inside and check out some of the cool new interactive displays that will greet visitors beginning next Tuesday, July 5. And, I even recorded a short video to give you a little sneak peek.
So, the next time you’re in Blacksburg (after July 5), make sure you stop by the new visitor center located next to the Inn at Virginia Tech and see for yourself!
