ABOUT VT STORIES
VT Stories is an interdisciplinary and cross-campus oral history project that collects and examines stories all members of the university community to build an inclusive and collective story of Virginia Tech. Initiated in 2015 by the President's Office, VT Stories serves as a collaborator with the Council on Virginia Tech History's projects. In addition to providing content for Visualizing Virginia Tech's History: If This Place Could Talk and Voices in the Stone, VT Stories is developing a series of projects called, Who Built This Place, including “A Legacy of Hokie Stone."
