You’re already a member–no money, no dues–not ever. No kidding!


Mission: The purpose of the Columbia Hokies is three-fold: to promote Hokie fellowship by hosting a variety of social events for alumni, friends, family, and fans to include an annual Virginia Tech speaker program; to organize and host fund raising events for academic scholarships awarded to Virginia Tech students from the Columbia, SC area and to assist recruiting Virginia Tech students from South Carolina high schools; and to live up to Virginia Tech’s motto Ut Prosim (that I may serve) by volunteering in the community.

Vision: We acknowledge and respect our differences while affirming our common Hokieness. It is our aspiration as Columbia Hokies to be responsive to the needs of our alumni in regards to their:

  • Career
  • Desire for lifelong learning and engagement
  • Social interactions
  • Willingness to provide volunteer service
  • Support to strengthen and advance Virginia Tech
