First-Year Undergraduate Students Online Programs

Virginia Tech is deeply committed to your well-being, academic success, and engaging you in a unique learning experience that doesn’t end in the classroom. We believe that a student’s ability to learn is enhanced when they are a member of a safe and healthy community. Our goal is to increase our acceptance of diversity in all forms, and to reduce the negative consequences of alcohol misuse and abuse on campus as well as the incidents of unwanted sexual behavior. Students are asked to take Haven as part of Virginia Tech’s new comprehensive prevention strategy and in response to federal guidelines specified by the Campus SaVE Act.
