The continuing adventures of Beau Yarbrough

My grade point average

Section: Virginia Tech

When I graduated from Virginia Tech, after five years and a summer session (due to almost always dropping my electives and just focusing on my comic strip with the Collegiate Times, starting a Greek system newspaper, doing my short-lived radio show for WUVT, managing VTTV, being a chairman or officer for Pi Kappa Alpha and, of course, my girlfriend), I looked at my grades and said “well, it’s not like I’m ever going to grad school.”


Fortunately, Tech is sending my transcript straight to my intended grad school without me having to look upon the carnage directly. (I had this mental illness where I kept taking Communications electives and not taking them seriously, and getting terrible grades in them as a result, seriously screwing up my Communications average. My second major, English, had a pretty good in-department GPA at the same time.) Now, if I get bad news in April about grad school, I plan on entirely blaming my grades.

Hopefully 15 years of work — and nine awards — will balance out 5 years and a summer session of sometimes inadequate focus.
