Join us in celebrating 150 years of Virginia Tech

We're asking Hokies everywhere to join us in marking 150 years of Virginia Tech. Participating is easy.

Join us at an event

We're hosting sesquicentennial events all year long on campus and in your area. Come join us in exploring Virginia Tech's future and remembering its past. 

Share our story

This milestone is cause for celebration — and reflection. Share what makes our community so special. We're asking Hokies to reflect on two things to mark this milestone.

  • Our story: The moments and memories tied to our culture and history. We'll be asking Hokies to share memories during University Commencement, Homecoming, the Big Event and more. Follow Virginia Tech social media accounts to learn more. 
  • Our journey: How we live Ut Prosim through service and building community. As Hokies we are called to live Ut Prosim (That I May Serve). In celebration of 150 years show us what you are doing to help your community and tell us why.

Use #VT150 to share your stories and service and see your reflections on our sesquicentennial website and at our events.
