Fall in the NRV

Fiery leaves engulf the trees of the New River Valley each fall. The students are back and the excitement in the air is only matched by the gorgeous and vibrant fall foliage. Parents, alumni, and friends will come home to visit their favorite spots.

Here are some ways to stay busy this Autumn:

  • Hike up Angels Rest on the Appalachian Trail, if you dare! Post a selfie and hashtag #NRVLife
  • Camp out at Claytor Lake State Park
  • Eat a feast made by Chef T at The Merc, then work it off biking the New River Trail
  • Hokie football! Fall means game day in the NRV. Prepare for food, friends, and football.
