Wa:ǫšpépioį: Indigenous Students

Summer Outreach Program

Virginia Tech would like to welcome Native and Indigenous prospective high school students to a FREE One-Week On-Campus higher education summer experience - Wa:ǫšpépioį : Indigenous Student Summer Outreach Program.


Dates: July 15 - 20, 2024


Wa:ǫšpépioį means "student" or "one who wishes to know" in Yesa:sahį, the Tutelo-Saponi Language, which is spoken by the Yesah / Monacan /Tutelo-Saponi peoples on whose ancestral homelands Virginia Tech occupies. The program offers Native youth the opportunity to engage in the university campus experience and with the many possibilities for postsecondary studies, campus programs, events and networks. During the program, participants stay in one of the Virginia Tech's dormatories and have meals together in one of the campus dining halls. Current Virginia Tech students serve as peer leaders and mentors and engage program participants with the campus facilities and programs.


Some of the experiences include... 

  • Exploring Regenerative Agriculture 

  • Field Trips to research farms and the campus Indigenous Community Garden 

  • Cooking Demonstrations 

  • Campus Tours
