For the first time, Virginia Tech’s Black Alumni Reunion will be hosted virtually. 

The event is set for April 12-18. Registration is now open. The reunion will have opportunities to network, connect with students, and celebrate with fellow Hokies. 

Virginia Tech’s Black Alumni Reunion is held biennially for alumni to come together to celebrate milestones, connect with one another, and have fun. The event was scheduled for spring 2020 and rescheduled to 2021 as a virtual event because of public health guidelines. 

There will be a week of online activities, including collaborative events supported by campus partners, including the Office for Inclusion and Diversity and Career and Professional Development.

Registration is $25, and a portion ($5) is a gift to the InclusiveVT Excellence Scholarship Fund. Participants get access to online events, plus a gift set that includes a T-shirt, glassware, and tote bag. Students can register for free

The theme of this year’s event is: Reflecting. Reconnecting. Rising.
