I'd like to see if ACC membership has increased the number of Massachusetts


undergraduates at Tech. When I majored in forestry back in the early 1980's, we had several students from Massachusetts in my class. When I switched to horticulture, there were a few students from that state and a lot from New Jersey and New York. Back then, Tech was a football independent and member of the mighty Metro conference. As a member of Newman Community at Tech, about half the members were from the Northeast and New England (which made sense since Virginia was 7% Catholic at that time). Tech has always attracted Northerners. That's how the southern schools made money. I just wonder if joining the Big East in the early 1990's and having BC and 'Cuse as members of the ACC has actually increased undergraduate enrollment from states like Massachusetts and New York since 2005. I wonder if Tech were in the SEC, if things would even change? Florida and Vanderbilt have a lot of Northerners at their schools.
