Undergraduate Student

Phillip Nash

Major: Sustainable Biomaterials

Expected Graduation Date: May 2016


Growing up in the woods and understanding the process of collecting lumber has always been an influential part in my life. While working for foresters, I found myself not wanting to be in the woods my whole life, so I decided to go one step further in the process of refining lumber. When I was a senior in high school, I found information about wood science and it fit me perfectly. Virginia Tech was always the place I wanted to be. My whole family went to Virginia Tech, and football games have always been one of the family’s favorite past times.

The outdoors has always been a big part of my life, from fishing, hunting, and trapping to camping and hiking. Participation in many clubs, my fraternity, and other groups take up the rest of my free time.
