Cornerstone Alumni are Virginia Tech’s most engaged and passionate alumni who have served as the foothold of the university for more than 50 years.

The group is comprised of alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago. They represent the foundation of our university and its motto Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) and their legacy will be felt for years to come.

Previously known, as the Old Guard Society of Golden Alumni, the group of storied alumni was renamed to better reflect its purpose and importance. Members of Virginia Tech’s Corps of Cadets who graduated 50 or more years ago are still referred to as the university’s old guard in honor of their service and are recognized at the corps' Pass in Review during Homecoming.

As Hokies celebrate their 50th reunion they are welcomed as Cornerstone Alumni, and invited back for a reunion each spring and other exclusive events during the year.
