A Student's Thoughts

The Theatre and Cinema Department allows students and teachers to build relationships based on mutual respect and a common passion for the art. Walking across the stage at graduation, I could see how proud they were of what I had accomplished in my 4 years at Virginia Tech. I am proud to have been a part of this department.
