Black Alumni Reunion  |  March 15-18, 2012

All black alumni are invited to campus for the Alumni Association's Black Alumni Reunion this March. Don't miss this opportunity to visit both familiar and new places on campus as you reminisce with friends and meet fellow alumni at mini-reunions, such as those for Greek life and athletics.

In addition to providing time to reconnect with fellow Hokies, the reunion features an exciting program. On Friday, March 16, explore career and personal development opportunities and discover how you can assist Virginia Tech's recruitment efforts. Plan your time together with fellow classmates and friends at the evening kick-off reception and then enjoy the Overton R. Johnson step show and decade parties for '70s, '80s, '90s, and '00s graduates.

On Saturday, March 17, join students at your college's hosted lunch and participate in this year's forum topic, "Building the Black Alumni Network." At the Black Student Panel, alumni will have the opportunity to mentor students and hear about their experiences.

The highlight of the reunion is the Influential Black Alumni awards dinner, at which this year's honorees will be recognized. Additionally, Black Alumni Scholarship donors will be recognized as part of the goal to endow the scholarships, which are designed to help the next generation of students.
