Our 3.14 Pi Day 5K 2022 virtual event was rousing fun. A total of 775 College of Science alums, friends, faculty (including new dean Kevin Pitts), and students ran, walked, biked, swam, and hiked during our virtual event March 14.

We gave away pies galore to some of our favorite Blacksburg Hokie friends and colleagues. Hokie alums also sent us photos or tagged us in posts to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. 

Join us March 14, 2023 as we get Pi’d.
