Beyond the Classroom
Hokie Hi

Embrace Your Awesomeness

strengths

We think you are pretty great already, just because you're a Hokie. At Virginia Tech, we don't talk about our weaknesses. Instead, we focus on our strengths. That's why we are the first university in the nation to offer the CliftonStrengths assessment FREE to all students. Learn about how you work, what you value, and who you are becoming. And don't be surprised if someone asks you about your “top five” once you get to campus!

You don’t need to wait for all your clothes to be put away neatly or for your posters to be put up perfectly. Move some of your stuff in, say goodbye to your family, and then come join thousands of other Hokies for Hokie Hi, a series of events and Hokie traditions designed to welcome you to campus.

Color Run Event

Hokie Hi culminates with Gobblerfest on Friday, September 2. Join us on the Drillfield to explore all Virginia Tech has to offer!

Check out the Hokie Hi website for the most up-to-date information on events, times, and locations.

Hokie Concert

Don’t miss the Welcome Back Picnic in Lane Stadium, KickOff, and several other events all over campus. Everything is planned and designed for you to have fun, get acquainted with your new home, make new friends, and explore different parts of campus interaction.
