What are the top five reasons you want to be a Hokie? Ever since visiting the the Virginia Tech campus for a full week in 2012 I have wanted to become a Hokie.

This superpower would be very useful in my current...

My favorite word is “Unverzueglich”, which is german for forthwith or instantaneously (right away). This word connects me to my heritage, because I am a german citizen, and grew up in Germany until the age of eight, until moving to Virginia. I love how this word implies action, that something has to happen NOW instead of later. This word has the power to reunite nations. In 1989, at a press conference in Eastern Berlin, a government representative announced that a new...

In general, you should know that if you want to study anything with engineering,...
