Your Virginia Tech College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Alumni Organization (CALSAO) exists to promote fellowship and networking among alumni and students and to advance the teaching, research, and extension missions of the College.

We are very fortunate to have an outstanding group of alumni and friends here in Virginia, across the country, and around the world. You are very important to everything we do, including providing internships and employment opportunities for our students, assisting with research and outreach programs, and providing input and advice to keep us current and responsive to society’s needs. And most importantly, your financial support helps students who might not otherwise benefit from an education from Virginia Tech.

Take a moment to review the information on this site. We hope it helps to keep you connected. We invite you to participate in the alumni events or encourage you to become more involved with CALSAO. We hope you find the information you need, but please don't hesitate to contact us if you have further inquiries.
