Homecoming weekend will kick off Friday evening with a Spirit Rally.

The annual Homecoming parade will be held Saturday morning in downtown Blacksburg, and the Office of Alumni Relations will host a tailgate at the Holtzman Alumni Center later that day before the Hokies play the University of North Carolina Tarheels. Saturday’s faceoff will be SGA’s Maroon Effect game.

The Class of 1969’s 50th Reunion and the Highty-Tighty Reunion will also be held Homecoming Weekend.

The Class of 1969 will come together Oct. 17-19. The group’s 50th reunion marks their induction into the Old Guard Society of Golden Alumni.

The student-led Homecoming Board partners with several organizations to carry out a week of Homecoming events prior to the weekend.
