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 you have the information you need as you support your student during their 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.
Don’t stress out! If you have any questions or need help, the experts will be available at your Family Orientation this summer. In the meantime, reach out to Family and Alumni Relations!
Family and Alumni Relations is the first point of contact for Hokie families. We’re here to strengthen the partnership between your family and the university, supporting you just as much as we do your student while they are at Virginia Tech.
