It’s nearly time for The College Faire! (Friday – Saturday, July 29 -30, 2022)
For 2 days, our Tech & Dis research group will be partnering with the VT Libraries gaming squad to explore a more magical version of Virginia Tech online through a synchronous RPG experience. During this quest, we’ll learn about navigating accommodations in college, disability history and culture, and student experiences.
Registration is now closed. Stay tuned for more events in the future!
