Virginia Tech is the ‘glue’ for 2019 Family of the Year

After a cancer diagnosis and the devastating loss of a loved one, the 2019 Family of the Year shows what a Hokie really is: someone who is there for others and knows — both at games and in life — when to shout, “Let’s Go!”

Big ideas don't happen in a vacuum. Strong communities aren't built without participation. Transformative learning isn't limited to academic lessons.

Student Affairs exists to sustain a culture of learning, reflecting the profound opportunities inherent for students at Virginia Tech. We are committed to providing transformative experiential learning, to access and success, and to service and leadership in the spirit of Ut Prosim (That I May Serve).
