A new Virginia Tech tradition recently expanded when more than 400 Hokie alumni from 23 states descended on the Blacksburg campus for the university’s second annual Reunion Weekend.
“This weekend we doubled our attendees from last year,” Matthew M. Winston Jr., senior associate vice president for alumni relations, told a crowd at the Moss Arts Center.
Virginia Tech held its first summer reunion weekend last year. Rather than holding class year reunions on weekends in the fall, the university now gathers Hokies on campus for one weekend in the summer because it allows alumni to explore campus and even stay in residence halls.
“Our second summertime Reunion Weekend is a new tradition for us, and one that is off to an amazing start thanks in part to our amazing Hokie alums,” Winston said.
