Hey there, Hokies!
I am Christine Barry, and I am sponsored by Kappa Delta Sorority to be on your 2011 Homecoming Court! I’m here now to tell you a little bit about myself and why I am I so proud to be able to represent Virginia Tech.
So it here goes.
Every year I look back and cannot believe how far I have come and all the memories and friendships I’ve made at Tech. It is cliche, but I have made my best friends here and gone through experiences I will never forget.
Tech is more than just to school to us, it’s a lifestyle and defines who we are as people. What I love most about our community is the undeniable and unspoken bond we all share. There is something different about this place. We treat the campus like it’s our home and respect each other as if we were our own families.

At Tech, I’m not afraid that people will judge my odd quirks and habits. My friends here appreciate that I pretend I’m still a kid. I love Disney movies and Sunday morning cartoons! They think it’s hilarious that I am quite possibly the messiest eater ever.
And, while some of my sisters in Kappa Delta may think I’m crazy, they still support my passion for running and love for my military lifestyle! I give a lot of credit for my opportunities and growth as a person from being in the Corps of Cadets.
I couldn’t ask for better sorority sisters, friends and family. Tech allows us to embrace our full potential and for that, I am so thankful.
Being on Homecoming Court has already been such an amazing and humbling experience, and I can only hope that, if chosen as queen, I would be able to relay what it truly means to be a Hokie to the entire community.
So thank you, everyone. You have made my time here the happiest I have ever been, and I am not exaggerating when I say I love Tech, and I would never want to be anywhere else!
