About

What’s a Hokie?

We are.

At Virginia Tech, we’re reimagining how education and technology intersect. This approach transforms the ways we teach and learn, perform research, and engage with communities around the world.

Students working together lifting part of an engine.

Hokies collaborate with diverse team members and cross the traditional lines between fields and disciplines to tackle global-scale problems.

We push the boundaries of knowledge in order to make a difference in the world. Members of the Hokie Nation have a clear vision of how we can serve in our personal, professional, and civic pursuits.

We are a force for positive change, driven by our motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve).

We are Hokies.
