Matthew Cheatham

Peddrew-Yates Hall/Payne Hall ARLC

Matt serves as Assistant Residential Learning Coordinator for Peddrew-Yates Hall, Payne Hall, and New Residence Hall East. He received his bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech and is currently working towards a master's degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs from Virginia Tech. 

Prior to this position, Matt worked in New Student Programs with the extended orientation program Hokie Camp. He enjoys Housing and Residence Life because it allows him to work with many students throughout the year and assist in their development. Outside of work, Matt enjoys hiking, playing sports (tennis, volleyball, football), listening to music, and spending time with friends and family. 

Matt's favorite Aspiration for Student Learning is to Commit to Unwavering Curiosity because only with curiosity will you be able to continue to develop and learn more about yourself.
