Please see below that Friday, April 20th has been designated to show unity and support for those at Virginia Tech and the families that have suffered unimaginable grief. In that we wear orange on Friday’s to show Solid Orange support for Clemson, I ask that you add maroon this Friday to honor and support the families, administrators, faculty, staff, and students at Virginia Tech.
Thank you for keeping them in your prayers.

Spread the Word – Orange and Maroon Effect
Virginia Tech family members across the country have united to declare this Friday, April 20th, an “Orange and Maroon Effect” day to honor those killed in the tragic events on campus Monday, and to show support for Virginia Tech students, faculty, administrators, staff, alumni, and friends. “Orange and Maroon Effect” was born several years ago as an invitation to Tech fans to wear orange and maroon to Virginia Tech athletic events. We invite everyone from all over the country to be a part of the Virginia Tech family this Friday, to wear orange and maroon to support the families of those who were lost, and to support the school and community we all love so much.
