Undergraduate Student

Christa Weaver

Major: Wood Science and Forest Products

  • Option: Wood Materials Science
  • Minor: Chemistry

“The WEI will enable me to understand more in depth about how a business works, the wood production process, and product innovation”

I grew up loving the outdoors, and being creative. I got introduced to chemistry in middle school and have enjoyed science classes ever since. I came to Virginia Tech wanting to continue my passion through biochemistry, but soon decided it was not for me. I found out about wood science and forest products at a majors fair here and have been in love ever since.

I am a student ambassador for the Department of Sustainable Biomaterials and was a research student my freshman year working with my advisor on brand new research. My hobbies include baking and fishing, and I am a part of a dance company here at Virginia Tech.
