Whether you are a third-generation Hokie or the first in your family, don’t wait until you are on campus to start college life. Come to Hokie Camp! The Virginia Tech community is rich with tradition, and Hokie Camp will prepare you for what it means to be a part of the Hokie Nation. You’ll make friends, talk about the college experience and how to navigate it successfully, and become part of our unparalleled Hokie Spirit. To learn more and sign up, visit us online today!

Are you counting down the days until you come to campus? Lucky for you, you won’t have to wait until classes start to lay your eyes on Blacksburg again—you’ll get a chance at New Student Orientation.

At First-Year Orientation, you’ll stay in a residence hall, meet with an academic advisor to set up your fall schedule, get familiar with campus, learn about Virginia Tech traditions, and connect with other incoming students. Over the course of two days, you’ll learn so much about Virginia Tech that you honestly won’t want to leave. Fortunately, you get to come back a month later. Sign up here to reserve your spot!

Transfer Orientation is the same deal (without the overnight stay), but you’ll be with other incoming transfer students. Make sure you sign up here!

When you sign up for Orientation on Hokie SPA, you’ll be asked to provide information on all family members and guests who will be attending with you. There’s a $35.00 fee assessed for each family member/guest attending Orientation—this fee provides a boxed lunch on day one, Orientation materials, and all related programming. In order to complete your sign-up and receive your Orientation date, you’ll be required to pay the family member/guest fee.
