This semester might look a little different from the norm, but there’s still plenty of ways to connect with the Virginia Tech community.

To help remind students of just how much there was to do last semester, Virginia Tech Student Affairs launched the Hokies Can Do campaign. It aims to continue spreading the word of fun, safe ways to engage this spring. Don't forget to check out VT Better Together for resources promoting good mental health.

The upcoming week will include Virginia Tech’s final well-being day for the spring semester on Monday, April 26. well-being days are structured to revolved around seven types of rest and wellness: mental, spiritual, emotion, social, creative, sensory, and physical.
