Excitement is in the air as the chapter is nearing closer and closer to taking back the Oak Lane house. The move-in process will be quite the effort, as ensuring that it is exceptional for the 35 brothers living there and all other brothers before the start of the Fall ‘23 semester is easier said than done. As with any move-in effort, a housewarming party is a must, and the undergraduates and AVC board recognize this wholeheartedly. To commemorate the chapter’s long awaited return to our Oak Lane chapter house, and in the spirit of 53+ years of the Virginia Kappa brotherhood, the weekend of October 13 to October 15 will be an alumni reunion weekend like no other. Set during Virginia Tech’s homecoming weekend, the kickoff event on Friday, October 13 will be an informal dinner event at the chapter house from 4 – 8 pm EST; more details to follow. With a Saturday, October 14 home game against Wake Forest University, the brothers will gather to tailgate both by Cassell Coliseum and at Center Street. Sunday will hold a brief window of opportunity for any last-minute tours of the host for any brothers interested.
This three-day long period will be a celebration of all who have made our brotherhood what it is today, from 1970 to now. To those that haven’t set foot in Blacksburg since you walked the graduation stage, and to those that find themselves relieving the good ‘ol days in maroon & orange at every home game, we want you there this October to celebrate. This is our opportunity to move forward together, this is our return back to the chapter house. This truly is home, and will be for generations of brothers; past, present and future. Further details about Friday’s event will be shared in the coming month. Expect food, laughs, and brotherly love all around as we celebrate the largest Virginia Kappa brotherhood in the history of our chapter’s success in securing our house back.
