130th Anniversary Celebration

Banner New

We look forward to gathering in Blacksburg during the first weekend of April 2022 for fellowship and reminiscing with classmates.  Planning for the 130th Anniversary Celebration began in earnest in January 2020, and like many other people that have had trouble planning events over the past 18 months, we have continuously adapted our plans and worked with our various vendors to ensure all our alumni and friends have a memorable and safe experience.  We will be returning to the Manor for Saturday evening’s Anniversary Ball and will have the entire front parking lot and Cutchins Terrace covered with a conditioned tent and additional restroom facilities to allow for increased social distancing and fresh air circulation.

In April 2017, over 760 alumni, spouses, current members, and friends gathered in celebration at the German Club’s 125th Celebration, and we are anticipating an even larger turnout in April 2022 to celebrate our rich history and service to Virginia Tech and our communities, as well as marking the successful completion of the Foundation for the Future Campaign.
