MTAV 2020 will be held online this summer!

Concerns about COVID-19 simply make this a safer option for all involved. But we are going to have such a great time online! We’re going to stretch it out so you don’t have to sit in front of the computer screen for 4 days! Watch for events that will begin on June 1 and finish on July 26.

There is no charge for this year’s programs, but please register so we can keep you updated about the schedule! It will also put you in the running for prizes!

What’s More Than A Vacation?

Our summer alumni college is called “More Than A Vacation” because it’s like a vacation…but it’s MORE! You’ll learn, laugh, explore, and find that a lifetime of learning is still not long enough. Each year we hear from alumni and faculty members who share about topics they’re passionate about. We visit sites in the region in and around Southwest Virginia. We talk about history, literature, current events, art, sports, nature, music, and more. 

Everyone needs a vacation…but we can give you more. Take a peek at last year’s schedule and get an idea of what happens. Then plan to join us for the next event!
