hokie hokie hokie hi!

At 5:30pm on every Wednesday of the spring semester I have OL training. All 30 OLs and OAs, plus J.Jo and Meg, meet in the basement training room of New Hall West to conduct our training sessions. This Wednesday, however, J.Jo had a special surprise for us! We all got an email that went something like this...

Welcome back! Tomorrow’ s training session will feature VT Traditions presented by Dean Tom Brown. Tom has arranged for training to be held in one of the South End Zone suites! If driving, you can park in the Lane Stadium lot (pass not enforced after 5pm). You will need to enter through Gate 2 (behind ticket booth in the Lane Stadium lot). Either myself, Meg or an OA will direct you to the suite.

We will be providing Domino’s pizza; you will need to bring your own beverage. If you have a legitimate dietary concern and you cannot consume pizza, please let me know ASAP.

See you tomorrow,

What better way to start your week back at Tech than getting THAT email?! I was P-U-M-P-E-D (as Meg would say).

Wednesday evening finally rolled around, and I ran up to Lane stadium to be directed by the OAs up into the suite. And this is what I walked into...

We had some team building and bonding with our new OL teams, followed by trivia on VT history and traditions. Team Jen Davis was in the lead for the trivia just about the whole time, until the final few questions when we blew it. It's okay though! Our team is anything but a bunch of quitters. We will have our time!

What a wonderful Wednesday, to say the least! All of the OLs felt like such VIPs!! It truly was an unforgettable experience. Thanks J.Jo, Meg, and especially Dean Tom Brown for our incredible lesson on VT history, traditions, and spirit. And for taking us to one of the COOLEST places I have ever been on campus!
