i took this at the covocation at virginia tech. there were thousands and thousands of people there--too many to fit in the castle where the speeches of important figures were live. the rest of us that couldn't fit were detoured to the football stadium (where there would have been plenty of room for EVERYone)...We were forced to watch the speeches on the big screen. The audio was horrible, and many people left early. but it was nice to see all the unbroken spirit of the hokies and everyone support each other. i was very impressed with the number of people that came--not just students, but families and friends (like myself) and just anyone who wanted to show they cared.
