Sports information director Dean Buchan notes that 68 Tech former and current athletes and student managers will earn their diplomas. Forthwith, a Q&A (mostly an A) with defensive tackle Logan Walls, a management major who was twice an All-ACC academic football team honoree. He had a 3.27 GPA going into this semester. He’ll be one of at least six post-graduates playing football in the fall.
Hardest class: Computer Science 1315. “It was the only one I could study really hard for and just not do as well as I wanted to.
Easiest class: Military Science. “It wasn’t too bad. It really all depends on the teacher. I got really lucky with that one, so that was probably my easiest one.”
Toughest assignment: “Probably most of the [computer science] stuff. If you miss a period or anything (in programming), then it’s wrong. That was probably the most aggravating.”
Favorite professors: Arn Rubinoff and Gary Jones, both in the management school. “I just really enjoyed their teaching style and I really learned a whole lot in both of their classes. I touch base with them from time to time. They’re still really helpful.”
Toughest week of school and football: Practice prior to Tech’s appearance in the Independence Bowl last season. “We got a week or something off from football, but the game was so early, we were practicing during dead week (before final exams). That was pretty rough.”
Best advice received about school: “Probably just don’t give up. You just have to keep grinding because it definitely gets tough. You just have to keep going. You can’t let one test or one class discourage you.”
