2019 Student Recognition Picnic and Service Project
Our annual picnic and service project will be held on June 22nd this summer. Join your fellow Hokie alumni as we welcome new and returning students from our area in a day of service and fellowship.
We will begin the day with two service projects, giving our alumni an opportunity to work side by side with new and current students in the spirit of Ut Prosim. We will be helping out the Urban Ministry Center from 9:00 – 11:30 doing landscaping/painting/deep cleaning. We will also be working on our assigned Adopt A Street during the same hours. Please visit our Community Service page to register.
STUDENT RECOGNITION PICNIC
We will recognize our new and returning students with a covered dish picnic at Park Road Park Shelter #2 from 12:00 – 5:00. Our special guest will be Patty Perillo, the Vice President for Student Affairs and Assistant Professor of Higher Education at Virginia Tech. Patty oversees a budget of more than $174 million, a staff of approximately 3,600 employees, and has responsibility for more than 31 percent of the physical capital on campus. She is uniquely qualified to engage with our students about their experience as a Hokie.
The Charlotte Chapter will be providing burgers and hot dogs, water, soft drinks, and beer! We ask guests to please sign up below to bring tailgate appetizers, sides and desserts to share. We’ll begin eating around 12:30 PM. This is a free event for all local alumni and friends! Hokies of the 4-legged variety are welcomed as well!
We have access to our park shelter for the entire day, so we encourage attendees to enjoy the recreational facilities at the park after our program. We will be organizing corn hole and other activities for those interested, or feel free to enjoy the park on your own.
Please note: all alumni, current/future students and family/friends are welcome to attend either or both events!
