Torgersen on athletics

Hands-on-the-controls education
From the cockpit of a Navy A-6E Intruder, Virginia Tech students practice landing a damaged and malfunctioning plane. The cockpit's built-in flight simulator, programmed by Tech graduate students, helps make practice perfect.

Appreciated assets
Real-estate entrepreneur, Pat Cupp '70, may hold the record for the number of credit hours earned by a Tech undergraduate. He's missed only two home football games since 1959. Now, this dedicated Hokie is giving back to Tech in the form of a valuable property donation.

An exhilarating career: Musser retires
After a decade as commandant of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets, Maj. Gen. Stanton R. "Stan" Musser is retiring to hit the road with his wife, Dawn. Musser reminisces about his career, including his pre-Tech days as a fighter pilot and a member of the elite Thunderbirds.
