The Forest in the Perspective Gallery (November 3-December 21)

The Forest is an exhibit which explores the subtle connections between things unseen yet which are all dependent upon each other for life.  An experience based on nuance and the powers of observation, the installation combines technology and traditional art forms to help the viewer connect to the power of fleeting moments that may occur while on forest walk.

Emily Mawyer challenges students to see the bigger picture

Behind the festive, week-long celebration of Virginia Tech’s 2017 Homecoming are 17 students who comprise the Homecoming Board. They started planning in January 2017, collaborating with student organizations, Corps of Cadets, the Virginia Tech Alumni Association, and the community to make the best Homecoming possible. Working side-by-side with them is Emily Mawyer, assistant director of campus events and advisor to the Homecoming Board.
