Family members play an important role in their students’ lives. Research shows that today’s college students are in contact with their families more than ever—sometimes multiple times a day. Because of this, we want to make sure that you have the information you need as you support your student during his or her time at Virginia Tech.
Students benefit when their family members understand and support the college experience, while encouraging them to take responsibility for the decisions they will be making. Our goal is to assist you in supporting your student’s transition to Virginia Tech and their academic success—from orientation through commencement.
Family Relations is the first point of contact for Hokie families. We’re here to strengthen the partnership between you and the university, supporting you just as much as your student while he or she is at Virginia Tech.
