The Virginia Tech Alumni Association keeps Hokie Nation connected through networking, services, and involvement. The alumni association has no membership dues and all alumni are members for life. Alumni chapters, reunions, homecomings, communication, advocacy, student engagement, and recognizing excellence among faculty, students, and alumni are hallmarks of our service to the university. The cornerstone of our core values is embodied by the university motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve).
