Nicholas Amorim

Amorim is double majoring in finance and real estate. When he graduates, he hopes to start a real estate development company that will focus on advancing underdeveloped communities. He plans for his company to also serve the community by employing those who are not often allowed to work. “Coming to Virginia Tech,” he said, “I wanted to leave a mark as an out of state student.” He knew that the best way to leave his mark would be to get involved in as many things as possible. “I was always the guy that sat in the front of the class, I built a rapport with my professors, and I was always myself.” Even after coming into Virginia Tech knowing no one, he was able to meet so many different people. He loved the general attitude of the student life here and the overly polite nature of his fellow students. Amorim got so involved that he joked, “now I can’t walk across the drill field without seeing 10 people I know.”
