Move-In is the kick-off event to Hokie Hi, and Hokie Helpers are ready to assist new students as soon as they arrive. Hokie Helpers represent the Virginia Tech community of students, faculty, and staff who volunteer their time to help on move-in days, when more than 9,000 students will move in to the campus residence halls.
Hokie Helpers' smiles, muscles, and goodwill set the stage for a successful and stress-free move-in. Volunteers will help empty vehicles, move items from the street to the rooms, provide information, and welcome new students and families!

Why blue and white instead of maroon and orange?
We all know that maroon and orange is the perfect color combination for Hokies, but Hokie Helpers would be difficult to spot in a sea of maroon and orange parents, alumni, and new and returning students during opening weekend. When in doubt, look for a blue shirt!
