Students at Hokie Camp

What do you do at Hokie Camp?

At Hokie Camp, you'll participate in activities designed to help you get to know other new Hokies, learn about resources on campus, learn about Hokie Spirit and traditions, and become part of the Hokie community. New Hokies are placed in groups of eight to nine, led by one upper class counselor, called Building Groups. Six Building Groups combine to make a color group (Blue, Red, Green, Black, and Yellow).
