See more at Virginia Tech’s Timetable of Classes (select “RLCL” in the Subject).

Because of the number of requests he receives each year, Prof. Gabriele’s policy for writing letters of recommendation is that a student must have taken at least 2 courses with him during their time at Virginia Tech, or have worked substantively with him in some other capacity (undergraduate research, thesis advisee, etc.).
