Virginia Tech officially opened in 1872. It was born as a land-grant college, and appropriately, its distinctive buildings are constructed from limestone mined at the quarry on the fringes of Blacksburg. It is affectionately called “Hokie Stone.”
The buildings depicted are Burrus Hall, The War Memorial, and the Newman Library. Burrus Hall, built in 1936, is the main administration building and the University’s signature building. The War Memorial Court consists of eight pylons that represent Brotherhood, Honor, Leadership, Sacrifice, Service, Loyalty, Duty, and the University motto “That I May Serve.” The lower level contains a 260 seat chapel.
Va Tech is proud of its history, academics, and athletics making this a unique gift for recent graduates, past alumni, and fans of all ages. Continue making memories!
