First State Chapter
Virginia Tech Alumni Relations
May 26, 2018 edition
News from Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech is planning its very first summer reunion weekend, Reunion 2018, on June 7-10 in Blacksburg. Instead of holding individual class reunion weekends during the fall football season, we’re inviting ALL Hokies to gather together at the same time. There will be special opportunities for anniversary classes (those ending in ‘3 and ‘8) but most activities are open to all alumni.
All the details can be found here, including a schedule and registration info: https://www.alumni.vt.edu/events/2018/06/reunion2018.html
Our Chapter has great events coming up this year. We hope to meet you there!
CROP-A-QUE Young Alumni Gathering (June 1st)
