Hawkeyes Support Hokie Hope Day

In an email to University Librarian Nancy Baker, Dean of the Virginia Tech Libraries Eileen Hitchingham asked her colleagues across the country to wear maroon and orange in support of “Hokie Hope Day” and take a picture for the Virginia Tech Archives.

“I think of the parents and families today- all in shock– but later it will be very important to feel that the memory of their lost one lives on, and to re-live the unbelievable outpouring of good will that is coming from around the world,” says Hitchingham.


Thank you to all the Libraries staff who donned maroon and orange and came out to share their support for those at Virginia Tech. This photo will be forwarded to the University Archivist at Virginia Tech.
