Alumni & Friends


Welcome alumni!

The Alumni Relations office within the College of Science (COS) continually seeks to serve, steward, and engage our 32,000+ alumni in lifetime mutually beneficial relationships aimed to strengthen the bond between our alumni, the college, and the university. Our college and departmental programs, alumni events, alumni visits, and participation in numerous alumni and student related activities, serve as a backdrop to generate interest and involve our alumni with the COS faculty, administration, students, friends, and other college alumni.

Alumni are essential to the life of this College.  You provide employment opportunities, internships, mentoring, and scholarship support to our current students.  In addition, by proudly letting people know you are a Hokie and that you graduated from the College of Science, you consistently reinforce the prestigious reputation of our school and our university.

Don’t be a stranger!  There are many ways to be engaged and we encourage you to explore opportunities to stay connected to the School, to fellow alumni and to students.
