Virginia Tech is redefining the role of the 21st-century comprehensive land-grant by bringing together forward-thinking leaders, world-class faculty, and enterprising students who share the spirit of grit and determination that exemplifies our lunch-pail mentality.

People are the driving force that is advancing the vision for Virginia Tech. From research and learning to community outreach and entrepreneurism, university leaders, faculty, alumni, and students are building a better tomorrow—story by story.

The university's flagship publication, Virginia Tech Magazine forges stronger relationships among alumni, donors, and friends of Virginia Tech. The magazine highlights the vibrancy of a university on the leading edge of technology, service, learning, research, and scholarship and showcases the achievements of alumni, faculty and staff, and students through a rich array of feature stories, alumni profiles, and university and alumni news. Virginia Tech Magazine is published quarterly by the Office of University Relations, with support from Alumni Relations. The Virginia Tech Foundation underwrites most production costs.
