There is only one full week of classes left in the semester. Then, a half a week. Then, final exams. Can you believe it? I can’t. I feel like this semester has gone by so much faster than normal, and it’s also been so much harder than the others. But I’ve made it this...

The Big Event was held last Saturday, April 8th on the Virginia Tech campus, and thousands of students gathered on the Drillfield to get their tools and volunteer assignments before dispersing into teams. The Big Event is a volunteer event held each April in which stud...
