Nominate outstanding young alumni

The Virginia Tech Alumni Association invites alumni to nominate candidates for awards presented each year to outstanding young alumni. These awards recognize one graduate from each of the academic colleges who is a leader in his or her profession and community. Alumni who have graduated in the past 10 years are eligible. For the 2002-2003 awards, graduates of the classes of 1992 through 2001 will be considered. Nominations are due by Aug. 15 and should be mailed to Outstanding Young Alumni Awards, Virginia Tech Alumni Association, Alumni Hall (0102), Blacksburg, VA 24061. Please include as much biographical information as possible about each nominee.

College homecomings new this fall

New opportunities for alumni to visit the campus will be part of the fall football home game schedule. Beginning in September, different college homecomings will be held on most of the home game weekends for all seven undergraduate colleges. College homecoming weekends will be an excellent way for alumni to visit with faculty and other alumni from their respective colleges. For some colleges, the homecoming activities are focused on several specific departments, rather than college-wide. But in each case, the colleges are anxious to showcase their programs and extend their hospitality to alumni. The Alumni Association staff will assist the colleges with planning and hosting the weekends.

The dates for each college are included in the calendar of fall events on this page. The specific schedules for the different college programs and registration information are available online at or by calling the Alumni Association at 540/231-6285. College publications mailed to alumni also will include specific registration information.
