Folks, college is expensive. While you are here, you might as well make the most of the plethora of resources you pay for at Virginia Tech! Some of the lesser-known resources are through our libraries. Sure, libraries have books and databases, but did you know they also have multiple creative studio spaces, language-learning software, free online certification classes, and more? Don’t miss out on these valuable resources!
Library Studio Spaces There are many studio spaces i
It’s that time of year again, folks! The start of the new semester means shopping for more textbooks. As a freshman, a lot of your spring semester classes are often the second part of the classes you took in the fall semester; calculus, engineering, english, and chemistry (if you’re lucky enough to want to be a ChE, BSE, or MSE major) so your textbooks carry over. However, there are other textbooks you have to buy for the new semester including books for physics, electives, a
Virginia Tech has a few things that can sometimes be overlooked by students, one of these is a radio station broadcasting from here on campus. 90.7FM is the frequency for Virginia Tech's own radio station, WUVT, coming from Squires and broadcast all throughout the New River Valley region. This station started officially in 1969 and is one of the longest running radio stations in Virginia. Though it’s true origin was a student created AM transmitter from a dorm room in 1948, t

This is also the time when the due dates of term papers and semester projects start to get a little too close for comfort, meaning long hours in your dorm or the library trying to keep on top of all your assignments. One thing that typically suffers because of all these things is health, both mental and physical. In this blog, I would like to talk about some wa
For this blog post, I sat down with my roommate Nick Gutkowski - a Junior in Computer Science and a member of Galipatia's Data Committee. Why did you choose Computer Science? I chose computer science because I'm interested in how we interact with technology, which today is more often done through software. My focus is in human/computer interaction - because designing interfaces and software to be intuitive to use is important so that the public as a whole can best use the res
I recently had the pleasure of helping out with Jumpstart Day, an annual Galipatia event sponsored by CEED staff who serve as Galileo and Hypatia instructors. For those who don’t know what this event is, it takes place before the second semester, and is tailored to individuals in the community who received a GPA of less than 3.00 in their first semester in General Engineering at Virginia Tech. I volunteered to help with this event, because I was in that position when I had fi
