You’ll hear that phrase a lot at summer orientation. Have you signed up yet? If not, now is the time. First-Year Orientation offers 13 sessions over a four-week period in July (the weeks of July 10, 17, 24, and 31). Your specific orientation session is based on your academic major, so you may have fewer than 13 session dates from which to choose. Registration is open so don’t delay. It’s time to get your gobble on!
Living on campus is not only convenient, it offers an exceptional opportunity for finding friends and making important connections as you start college life. With more than 40 residence halls, including more than a dozen living-learning communities, we invite you to find a community where you live, learn, laugh, and launch your Virginia Tech experience. Click “Living Here” in the black navigation bar to explore all on-campus housing, as well as other tips and hints for life on campus and in Blacksburg. Welcome home, Hokies!
Are you counting down the days until you arrive at Virginia Tech? We know you are excited to start your Hokie experience, and Orientation is a wonderful program to help you transition to university life. Be sure you’ve created your PID so when Orientation registration opens mid-March you’ll be ready. And if you haven’t already completed your Housing/Dining contract, you can go ahead and mark that off your to-do list. In the meantime, explore opportunities like Hokie Camp and Summer Academy. And, rest assured, lodging in Blacksburg during Orientation isn’t nearly as competitive as during football season!
From the moment you got your acceptance, you’ve been a Hokie, and we couldn’t be more excited to say, “Welcome home.” You’re In…Now What? is your first sneak peek into life at Virginia Tech, so take some time explore this site. It’s a lot of information, but trust us—now that you’re a Hokie, we’re pretty certain you’ll read it with more fervor than you’re reading your textbooks these days.
(Just as a little FYI: we’ll make some minor tweaks to the site and its content in the coming months, so make sure to come back and visit every now and then!)
