Hokie Families

We are excited that your Hokie has chosen Virginia Tech as the place where they plan to live, learn, and grow over the next several years. Supporting your Hokie as they transition to a new community can be both exciting and daunting, but we are here to help guide you along the way! New Student and Family Programs offers events and services designed specifically to welcome all incoming Hokies and their families to the Virginia Tech community.


This guide gives an overview of Family Orientation, Welcome Week and Family Weekends. Take the time to read through it and visit our website at https://students.vt.edu/transition.html for information on these very important first steps in your Hokie's life as well as your own. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to help!
