All Hokies in Europe and Northern Africa have been contacted and are safe
Following Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris, Virginia Tech immediately began to contact all students and faculty studying, teaching, or engaged in research in Europe and Northern Africa. By Saturday, all 104 students and six faculty members confirmed their safety. In addition, over the weekend, staff from the Division of Student Affairs have reached out to students from France studying on our campus to offer support and assistance.
