A Guide to the University for Visiting Virginia Tech Students

Despite being a student at the University for almost two-and-a-half years — one-and-a-half if you exclude the entirely remote COVID-19 year — I’d never really given much thought to what specific aspects of the University contributed to my appreciation for all it is and all it can be. Or at least, that was the case until I was given the opportunity to collaborate with Emanda Seifu, an Assistant Lifestyles Editor for Virginia Tech’s Collegiate Times. In preparation for the upcoming Commonwealth Cup, we sat down and came up with some of the key traditions and places that make us love our universities.

Clark Atlanta University and AUC Present a Great Atmosphere for Debates

(Photo/Facebook) Yet another mayoral debate took place Thursday night, and there are the two candidates, Atlanta City Council President Felicia Moore and councilman Andre Dickens took the stage in front of television cameras to spread their respective gospels. The pair have ideas on how to make Atlanta a safer city, better city and more financially responsible city. All of which many have heard over the past few months and dozens of debates. What was different this time was that the debate took place inside of the Henderson Student Center at Clark Atlanta University. Hosted by the university and Georgia Stand Up, an Atlanta-based social justice non-profit, the spacious auditorium was filled with student volunteers helping usher members of numerous communities to their seats.Broadcast live on CBS46, and moderated by Karyn Greer, a veteran journalist and CBS news anchor, and Dr. Rashad Richey, a local radio personality, the debate felt more like a family gathering than a political event. That had a lot to do with it taking place in the Atlanta University Center, according to Georgia Stand Up CEO Deborah Scott, who took time to take questions from the crowd before the debate.
