Homecoming (Reunion) 2018

Tech vs. Boston College - Nov 2-3

Homecoming 2018 has been set for November 2-3 Click HERE to go to the registration page.

Details: As always the schedule won't be finalized until much later depending on broadcast decisions etc. But this is what we know as of now per Chuck Rowell:

Band practice is scheduled for Friday at 7:30 as always. Stay tuned for details on that later. On game day, November 3, we will have the Annual VT Homecoming parade beginning at 9:00 am. We will form up near the site of the old Blacksburg High School. Following the parade, we will once again march onto the drillfield in front of Burruss Hall and fall out near the VT Chapel.
As we have for the last two years, we have scheduled a meal for the HTA members as well as their guests. The HIghty-Tighties will join us for the meal. It will be held on the second level of Deitrick dining hall. The time for this meal will not be set until two weeks before the game as game times are dictated by TV schedules,etc. The manager of food service at Deitrick has improved the seating area so that we will have more room for everyone. The food is excellent with up to five different food stations and great desserts. You will need to register for the meal when you register for HT Homecoming on the registration link above.

We had almost 300 people attend the meal last year. With great food, minimal program content and plenty of time to visit with your classmates, it makes for a memorable day. Please register soon. We hope to see you there this year.
