Counting down the days...

Hokie Bird

Are you counting down the days until you arrive at Virginia Tech? We are so excited for you to start your Hokie experience! This is a great place to start exploring. Be sure you’ve created your PID so when Orientation registration opens in March you’ll be ready.

If you haven’t already completed your Housing/Dining contract, go ahead and mark that off your to-do list. Even if you don't know who you want for your roommate, it's okay. You can complete the contract and come back later (worry free!). And be sure to check out Living-Learning Communities. They are a great way to ExperienceVT!

There are three main student centers on campus—Squires, Johnston, and the Graduate Life Center.

The three student centers are part of Student Engagement and Campus Life, a department in Student Affairs. This department is committed to the student experience and supports students and student organizations with all their needs from production services and event planning, to leadership and development.

In addition to being the perfect study spot, student centers at Virginia Tech are where you go to buy a ticket for an event, hold student organization group meetings, or just grab coffee with friends. Student Engagement and Campus Life works closely with student organizations on space needs, whether the Student Government Association is holding an awards banquet, VTU and BSA are hosting a concert, or the Quidditch club needs a meeting room.

If visual arts is more your style, stop by the Perspective Gallery on the second floor of Squires.

Bowling? Billiards? Table tennis? All things fun? Hit up BreakZONE, Virginia Tech’s very own recreation and game center. It’s in Squires, too!
