Family of the Year Ribbon

Call for Family of the Year Nominations

The Family of the Year award is presented by the Division of Student Affairs to acknowledge the people who are so important to our students—as mentors, collaborators, friends, advocates, and guides. This award honors a parent, family member, or family of a current Virginia Tech student who has made a significant impact on the student’s college success. The Family of the Year Award winner will receive the following honors:

  • An introduction during the Virginia Tech Spring Football Game during Family Weekend (April 25, 2015).
  • Special guests of Dr. Patty Perillo, Vice President for Student Affairs, at the Family Weekend Tailgate prior to the game.
  • Two nights at The Inn at Virginia Tech (April 24 & 25, 2015).

Nomination Deadline is March 15, 2015 by 11:59 p.m.


Call for Favorite Faculty Nominations

Housing and Residence Life is seeking “Favorite Faculty” nominations from students who live on campus. A reception honoring faculty who are nominated and the students who submitted nominations will be held on Wednesday, April 1 at 5:30 p.m. in Owens Banquet Room. Teaching/Research and Administrative/Professional Faculty are eligible to be nominated as “Favorite Faculty.”

The “Favorite Faculty” program is an effort to encourage students to recognize the positive impact that faculty have had on them and their college experiences. This reception for the nominators and nominees provides a forum for students and faculty to spend time together outside of the classroom and celebrate their positive interactions.

All on campus residents are eligible to nominate up to two faculty members for their outstanding contributions, dedication to students, or personal influence. Students can submit their nominations online.

Faculty will receive a letter informing them of the nomination along with an invitation to the reception. Nominating students will be notified when their faculty member has submitted an RSVP for the event.

Nominations will be accepted until March 6, 2015. For questions regarding this event please contact James Penven at 540-231-6205,
