MTAV Online! Special events for the spring and summer of 2020

Sure…we love being on campus for  More Than A Vacation (MTAV) – our summer alumni college that has taken place on campus for 26 years. But, now that we’re all getting more comfortable with online events, why couldn’t we enjoy some of our MTAV events all throughout the year?

Beginning in April 2020, we’ll have a series of events that are just like the ones we enjoy during More Than A Vacation – only, you can enjoy them at your home! 

We’ll list a time for the live event where you can enjoy the speaker and ask questions. Later, we’ll post a link to the recorded event. 

Watch this space as we continue to add more events!


Road Sides:
Emily Wallace, E&H ’04, will discuss her book Road Sides and take questions about this interesting A to Z book that highlights some of our most iconic road side stands. Prepare to talk about Dip Dogs and South of the Border and more! (Confirmed! Time TBA)


Roadside History:
Jennifer Loux, Virginia Department of Historic Resources, Highway Marker Program Manager, will give us the run down on just how those ubiquitous historic markers are chosen and installed. A little drive in the country might shake your blues – so lets find some markers together and get a little history!


Growing on the Roadside
Darryl Wilson, from Carolina Kudzu Crazy, knows all about the most ubiquitous roadside plant: kudzu. And he makes the most delicious kudzu jam that this typist has ever had! Let’s get ready to ask him how he makes our most noxious weed the most delicious jam!
