Hokie Helpers

Welcome!

The need for Hokie Helpers is greater than ever. With approximately 10,000 students expected on campus this fall, we’re putting out a call for Hokie Helpers near and far!

Our students and their families will begin arriving on campus August 15 , and they will need smiling faces ready to greet and assist them once they show up. You’ll get to experience the joy of welcoming a student to campus, and you’ll make the move-in experience one that our Hokies will never forget.

Log-in with your PID/Password using the VT-Student SSO Login, click the "TimeSlots" link, and choose "Hokie Helpers Fall 2022" from the dropdown menu


What does a Hokie Helper do?

How do I register myself?

Register here!


How do I register a group?

This year, you may only register as an individual. With so many moving pieces, group registration would prove too difficult. If you would like to work with a friend or co-worker, we will try our best to make those arrangements for you. Please contact us at hokiehelpers@vt.edu to provide us with the name of the individual you would like to work with.
