2018 Highty-Tighty Alumni Reunion

Highty Tighty Reunion 2017 01

Nov. 2-3
Campus of Virginia Tech

For over 40 years, Highty-Tighty alumni have participated in Virginia Tech Homecoming by marching in the parade and performing at the football pre-game show with current Highty-Tighties.

In addition to the parade and game performance, we will gather for a meal at Dietrick Dining Hall (D2), located near Lane Stadium. D2 will provide a buffet meal, soft drinks, and desserts for current and alumni Highty-Tighties.

An alumni party will be held on Friday evening after band practice. If you are in town by that time, please stop in and say hello to old friends!

Dating back to the mid-1940s, alumni from all classes reunite and march with us each year. It doesn’t matter if your musical skills have diminished, or if you can no longer play your instrument, all Highty-Tighty alumni are invited to join us.

Our reunion is a great time for all who have lived the Highty-Tighty experience to come together, to march again as a band, and to reflect on what it means to be a Highty-Tighty.

Please join us as we come back together to enjoy the camaraderie of our fellow HT’s!
