Oak Lane Costume Caravan: Join us on Sunday, October 25 from 3-6PM to dress in costume and drive through our Oak Lane community to celebrate Halloween! Decorate your car and come on out to wave at Virginia Tech students along the route as they admire your costumes and show off their Halloween decorations! All Virginia Tech students will be wearing face coverings and will remain 6 feet apart, and there will be no physical contact or direct exchange of candy or other goodies along the drive-through. At the end of the route, each child will receive a pre-packaged bag of nut-free individually wrapped candy and treats through a special contact-less delivery system directly to their vehicle.
All adult participants (drivers and passengers) are asked to wear face coverings throughout the event, and everyone must remain in their vehicle at all times. Volunteers and staff working the event will be wearing face coverings and appropriate PPE and will wash or sanitize hands regularly. Anyone who is experiencing symptoms, has tested positive for COVID-19, or who has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 should not attend this event.

Welcome to Fraternity and Sorority Life!
The fraternity and sorority community currently encompasses more than 5,100 students which represents just about 19 percent of the undergraduate population; hence, fraternity and sorority life is incredibly dynamic at Virginia Tech. As such, there are three main aspects of which great focus will be placed in order to build upon the solid foundation of the interfraternal membership experience at Virginia Tech: community development, leadership and learning, and strategic planning.

Fraternal Leaders Institute
As fraternity and sorority leaders, we've been tasked with being change agents that take ownership of our community and transform it for the better! The Fraternal Leaders Institute is comprised of three different leadership experiences for members in our community. For more information on these experiences, please click on the Fraternal Leaders Institute link under the Members tab!
Learn about Fraternity and Sorority Life
There are 48 chapters within the fraternity and sorority community - each offering both similar and distinct types of experiences. Each year we update our Fraternity and Sorority Life Scorecard with information about chapter health - based off of the chapter's self-reported information and institutional data at the end of each academic year. In this guide you can learn more about their successes and challenges. Additionally, you will find more information about the conduct status of each chapter if they are currently under sanction by our Student Conduct office. Contact the Fraternity and Sorority Life office for more information!
Joining a Fraternity or Sorority
We are excited to introduce you to the lifetime experience of Fraternity and Sorority Life. With 48 fraternities and sororities, there's a wealth of opportunities to offer you. Since we know "people join people", we encourage you to visit our chapter directory in the top menu bar to learn more about each fraternity/sorority and contact them. If that may feel overwhelming for you, simply come see us in 117 New Hall West or email email@example.com. Either way, we want to meet you!
HOKIES DON'T HAZE
We all belong to Hokie Nation, and hazing has no place in our fraternities and sororities, or anywhere in our community. This is home and it is all of our responsibility to keep our home safe and healthy for all Hokies. Hazing is prohibited by the Hokie Handbook and it is a criminal offense in the Commonwealth of Virginia. If you ever witness or experience hazing, or if you have any information about potential hazing, we encourage you to report it online using the Hazing Reporting Form. If you or someone else is in danger, please contact the VT Police Department at (540)231-6411 or call 911.
