Soccer Supporters Section
If you’re interested in being a part of Virginia Tech‘s first official soccer supporters group then this group is perfect for you! Their main goal is to go to games and support the soccer team for 90 minutes. They’ll chant and be rowdy for the entire game to help push our team to victory.
Their student organization focuses on plant-based diet, food education, animal advocacy, responsible consumer behavior, and food and environmental justice. The goal of this organization is to improve the availability of healthy and sustainable food choices in the New River Valley and to enable and encourage the Virginia Tech community to make responsible food choices that are better for the planet and human health.
Bonding with Animals through Recreation on Campus (BARC)
BARC is a student-run club at Virginia Tech that works in partnership with the veterinary staff at the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.

Members walk, play with, socialize, and assist in training the dogs in order to make them more adoptable and to give them a richer, happier life.
The Gaming Project at Virginia Tech involves various aspects of design and development of computer and video games. The club is for anyone with general interest in game design, and members can learn about programming and computer art in the creation of a game.
