Much has changed since three Virginia Tech students attended the American Meteorological Society’s conference a few years ago. Meteorology achieved degree status in January 2012 and has since become one of the college’s most popular programs. This year, 16 current students, joined by a recent alum, attended the society’s conference in Atlanta and were treated to a personal tour of The Weather Channel’s facilities by alumna Kathryn Prociv (’11 B.A. and ’12 M.S. in geography), who works there as a weather content producer and graphic meteorologist.
