Each year the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences Staff Association undertakes fundraising activities to support its annual scholarship, which serves as a way for staff members to show their appreciation for the students and departments they serve.

Usually the association depends on in-person events for its fundraising. This year, the need for a new strategy led to the first annual CLAHS Staff Association Pet Calendar (read the origin story here). The association received more than 100 submissions of pet photos, all of which were captured both in the print edition and in this video montage.

The deadline for ordering copies of the calendar is December 7 at 5 p.m. All proceeds will go directly to the scholarship fund.

If you have already made a purchase and have not sent in your payment, please send it to LaTawnya Burleson or Brandon Dove at 200 Stanger Street, Blacksburg, VA 24061 (Mail Code 0426); checks should be made out to the CLAHS Staff Association.

The college’s Staff Association is the only one at Virginia Tech that has created, implemented, and continues to fundraise for a Virginia Tech student scholarship. The scholarship has been in place for more than 16 years and continues to grow each year. 

If you don’t want a print calendar, please consider donating to the Staff Association Scholarship Fund here.
