B.S. in Building Construction

Why did you choose Virginia Tech?

"It is a beautiful campus with one of the best Army ROTC and Building Construction programs in the country. There’s also a mountain I can go skiing at that’s under three hours away."

Why did you choose Building Construction?

"I fell in love with construction freshman year of highschool when my dad took me out to lip houses with him. When the time for college was coming, I realized I wanted to continue my career in construction, and the best way to do that for me was by studying building construction at Virginia Tech."

Career Goals

"I’m still in the process of figuring out what I want my career to look like and  what ceiling to reach."

What would you tell students who are interested in joining MLSoC?

"Do it. You won’t regret it. The connections you form here and resources the program provide cannot and is not mimicked anywhere else."
