Hokie Stone

Hokie Stone is the first thing a visitor is apt to notice upon entering the core of the Virginia Tech campus, and it's likely the most enduring visual memory an alumnus carries long after having moved on to meet life's other opportunities and challenges. Known as "our native stone" when first used in campus building construction back in 1901, this attractive and distinctive stone more recently assumed the moniker "Hokie Stone," reflecting its status as a Virginia Tech architectural tradition.
