Beyond the Classroom
This is Virginia Tech's co-ed professional music fraternity. Our mission is to musically and professionally enrich our members, the campus, and the community through musical events, service projects, and professional development seminars.
Started in 1979, the Zeta Omicron chapter provides support to the Virginia Tech Music program: The Marching Virginians, the Virginia Tech Concert Bands, as well as our dedicated faculty and staff.
United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) Student Chapter at Virginia Tech
The student chapter is made up of students (graduate and undergraduate) who have a passion for the Design/Tech side of the theatre and entertainment industry. These chapters work to promote learning among their peers and to support design and technology on campus.
USITT has been around since 1960, it was organized to promote dialogue, research, and learning among practitioners of theatre design and technology. Today it has grown to include members at all levels of their careers and has embraced the new technologies being used in entertainment. USITT is now the leader in life-long learning opportunities for the entertainment design and technology industry.
Progeny Film Festival
This Festival showcases the best of Virginia Tech student films representing a variety of genres and film styles. Since 2003, Progeny has drawn audiences every spring to the Lyric Theatre for entertainment and exploration of creative student work. Each year, a two-hour program of the best submitted films is put together by Progeny Alumni. The screening is immediately followed by an awards ceremony led by a faculty committee who select the winners, and the audience votes for Favorite Film. For more information about how you can get involved, contact faculty advisor Charles Dye.
