Notice about Hokie Preview

Thank you to those of you who have registered for Hokie Preview. Our staff has been keeping a close eye on the weather forecast for Blacksburg. The current report is calling for up to 13 inches of snow by Saturday night and includes the possibility of a sleet. National and local advisories call for hazardous travel conditions. For the safety of our guests, we have decided to cancel Hokie Preview.

We still want to offer an opportunity for you to visit campus and experience our community. If we are able to create another event, we will communicate directly with all Hokie Preview registrants. We will also be contacting Hokie Preview registrants in August to provide you with a priority registration opportunity for our fall open house events. You may also choose to visit us later this spring, or summer. We will be hosting two Open House events for seniors on October 13th and 14th and Nov 10th and 11th 2018 as well.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to hosting you soon.

There’s a Latin phrase you’ll come to know well: Ut Prosim.

It means “That I May Serve.” It’s our motto.

Because as a land-grant university, our purpose is to serve through teaching and learning and by sharing knowledge worldwide. Practicing our motto can be as simple as lending a hand in troubled communities or as complex as combating malaria through genetically based mosquito-control strategies.

Does living indoors affect your health?
