  • In one of his first meetings as director of admissions and associate vice provost for enrollment and degree management, Juan Espinoza asked his team to identify every single barrier in the application process. Thanks to this work by his Virginia Tech Undergraduate Admissions team, the application process is becoming more accessible and transparent. ๐Ÿ” Plus, they are training more faculty and staff to get involved in the review of student essays.

    "Now when we tell a student they've been offered admission, it's not just admissions saying, โ€˜Yes, you've been offered admission.โ€™ I'm able to say it's the community that's been part of this review process. And they're saying to that student, โ€˜Yes, we want you here. We're excited about your potential, and we hope that we're a part of your journey.โ€™ And that is a great message to send students, especially first-generation students.โ€ ๐Ÿค - Juan Espinoza

  • In 2017 alone, the National Park Service deployed almost 3,500 search and rescue missions in national parks. While human searchers are extremely skilled in what they do, Bradley Dept. of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech researchers are working to complement search and rescue efforts from the air. ๐Ÿ‘

    How? ๐Ÿ‘‰ By integrating drones and artificial intelligence into the processes to explore treacherous terrain and save time by providing large-scale data to help a search team make better decisions. ๐Ÿ’ป

    The candle was lit for 24 hours, and the Corps of Cadets stood guard for 32 minutes, prior to the candle being extinguished at 11:59 p.m. on 4/16/2019.

    Once extinguished, the light was carried back into Burruss Hall, representing the commitment to never forget. ๐Ÿงก ๐Ÿงก #VTWeRemember
