Contents

4 Mending our break with nature
The Earth is broken-or at least wounded-most agree, and it's time to fix it. Whether it be with rescue squad-style resuscitation efforts, public education, or critical research, Virginia Tech faculty, programs, and interdisciplinary centers are responding.
12 Huckleberry Line
With plenty of help from students and friends, the former railroad line to Virginia Tech is now reincarnating as a walking path.
14 What are Hokies gobbling?
The cooks are chefs, and choices range from Mexican to Chinese to sinfully sumptuous chocolate at Virginia Tech's newest dining hall. Three alumni rate the eatery four-star.
