Each spring and fall, Family Weekends give you a time to visit with your student, learn about their Virginia Tech experiences, and explore campus – including a chance to sample our award-winning dining options.

Fall Family Weekend is a tradition that stretches far back into our campus history, and one we continue to value as an important part of the journey students and their families go through. Spring Family Weekend typically occurs during the weekend of the Spring Game, offering students and their families an opportunity to enjoy the thrill of collegiate athletic competition in a community filled with Hokie Spirit.

Families can play a key role in creating positive opportunities for their students. Simply put, students who have family support are more likely to thrive in their academic studies and personal well-being. We hope you will plan to join us on campus for one or both of these weekends to reconnect with your student in their new home.


Family Weekends are sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs and supported by a grant from the Hokie Parent Fund.
