Undergraduate Class Programs
Class Programs are advised by the Office of Alumni Relations and consist of activities and events associated with building class affinity, supporting the class ring tradition, and the Senior Class Gift Campaign.
Class officers for each class serve for life and are elected in the spring semester of each group's first year. Through an application process, sophomore officers select their class leadership team which includes members of the ring design committee, ring dance committee, and class relations committee. The ring design committee creates a ring unique to each class. The junior dance committee plans the annual Ring Dance Weekend has been the grand event on campus since 1934. In senior year, the leadership team works on the Senior Gift Campaign and the special event chairs of the team plan Grad Bash.
Class Officers at Virginia Tech are elected in the spring of their first year and serve for life. Class Officers are automatically members of SAA. Information sessions are held in fall and early winter for those interested in running for any of the eight class officer positions. Interested candidates must petition to run for office and abide by campaigning rules governing the spring election. For more information, contact Laura Wedin, advisor to the class system.
Each class level at Virginia Tech has a Google group listserv that announces Class activities and student programs. Class listservs are determined by a student's academic level as indicated by the registrar's office of Virginia Tech. Because of this, entering students with Advanced Placement credit with be automatically placed on the Class listserv for their academic level. For example, if you have enough credit hours to be included with the Class of 2021 but consider yourself part of the Class of 2022, please email the Class Listmaster at email@example.com and ask to be changed to the appropriate listserv.
