I'm at Virginia Tech this weekend with SWAC Niece and her-mother-my-sister for a follow-up visit to help in SWAC Niece's college decision after she was accepted at both Virginia Tech and University of Virginia. She visited UVa last week; this weekend it's Tech.
This James River High School senior has worked hard, studied hard, been involved in all kinds of extracurricular activities, athletic, plays guitar, and is fluent in French.
Her grandpa was in the Cadet Corps at Virginia Tech and graduated with his engineering degree, Class of 1947.
Hundreds attended today's events, breaking up into groups to tour the campus.
It's spring in Blacksburg with blooming flowers and blossoming trees.
Our home away from home for the weekend is the Inn at Virginia Tech.
Look at that view of the mountains from downtown Blacksburg. Beautiful.
Tonight, as we returned from dinner, a full moon could be seen in the sky over the Inn at Virginia Tech. SWAC Niece has a meeting Monday morning with one of the professors -- Chesterfield County schools are on spring break this week which presents the opportunity to finish visiting and make her decision -- and then we're heading home. It's been fun. This aunt was honored to be asked to join in this adventure as SWAC Niece makes her decision about whether she will become a Hokie, or a Cavalier. Stay tuned....
