Family Weekends are a time for you and your student to reconnect. We encourage you to explore the New River Valley, Blacksburg, and the Virginia Tech campus. Special events include athletic competitions, exhibitions, featured dining events, information sessions, open houses, presentations, outdoor activities, and tours. No matter what type of event or activity you enjoy most, make sure to spend some time making lasting memories with your student.

The Fall Family Weekend 2019 schedule offers something for everyone. Events include:

  • Family information sessions on student well-being resources, second year housing options, how to support the mental health of your student, why student involvement is important, becoming active in the Virginia Tech Parent Council, strengths-based parenting, career-related experiences, a Fraternity and Sorority Life student panel, and more.
  • The academic showcase fair.
