What is a hokie?
Contrary to what you may hear on CNN, ESPN, or the Ricki Lake Show, a Hokie is not a castrated turkey. The fact is that the word Hokie has nothing to do with a turkey at all. The word Hokie was made up by O.M. Stull (Class of 1896) for a spirit rally. A contest was held and Stull won a $5 prize for the cheer now known as Old Hokie. Stull admits that he made up the word just to attract attention. The word has no hidden or symbolic meaning. However the word stuck and has been a part of Virginia Tech tradition ever since.
