Dear Alumni,

I hope you and your family members are doing well!

Despite the continued need to be physically apart during this time, there are so many opportunities to stay connected to our college virtually. We encourage you to visit the college news site, for example. The alumni stories page of that site may be particularly interesting, as it includes an ever-increasing number of alumni stories and profiles, as well as our Alumni Bookshelf.

We keep our Alumni Events page updated, but with so much still uncertain with the pandemic, you may want to take advantage of some of our virtual offerings. Hokie experts have been participating in a series of teach-ins on social justice, for example. On June 30, the Department of English will sponsor one that features internationally acclaimed poet Nikki Giovanni, other faculty members, an MFA student, and alumnus L. Lamar Wilson. On July 2, the Department of History is hosting Black Lives Matter and Social Movements. Study guides are also available for past teach-ins sponsored by the Department of Religion and Culture and the Department of Science, Technology, and Society.

You may consider participating in the college’s group on Hokie Mentorship Connect, an online platform that allows alumni to provide career-related support to Virginia Tech undergraduates. Our students — especially members of the Class of 2020 — could benefit from the advice you share on these platforms now more than ever. You can also support current students through the Student Emergency Fund.

We also hope you will follow our social media accounts, which include Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and, most recently, LinkedIn. Finally, please feel free to email me at

Take good care of yourself, and keep in touch!
