I wanted to tell you that I am quite
pleased with my decision to pursue an M.S. in Civil Engineering
at the University of Virginia.
I received a very nice package from the University of Virginia
that includes tuition, health insurance, and a $1300-a-month
stipend funded as an assistantship.
In graduate school, I am able to concentrate on the aspects of civil engineering
that interest me the most -- bridges and structures.
The civil engineering department here at UVA
has an exceptional research facility.
As an example, they study the effects of compression and salt water solutions
on different mixtures of concrete.
They also study ways to make pavement materials such as asphalt last longer.
Thank you for the one-on-one time I received with you at Wesleyan.
I appreciate your
help on classwork and the advice from your lifetime of experiences.
