Meaning and history

Virginia Tech Hokies Logo history


The nickname “Hokie” comes from a spirit cheer created by a student named O.M. Stull in the 1890s. Before that, the players of the university’s athletic program were nicknamed the Gobblers.
The current athletic logo (since 1983) of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University features the letters “V” and “T” in maroon with white and burnt orange trim. The letters are positioned next to each other, while their ends merge into one another.
