Spring 2017 Corps Review    |    Back

This fall, cadets will be living in the two newest residence halls on campus. Pearson Hall opened in late 2015 and replaced Rasche Hall. Brodie Hall’s replacement, New Cadet Hall, will celebrate its opening later this year. In January, it was announced that the U.S. Green Building Council recognized Pearson Hall with a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver certification. It recognizes the use of sustainable and recycled materials, energy and water efficiency, and other aspects in the building’s design and construction. Pearson Hall is the 14th Virginia Tech facility to earn a LEED certification. 

For most of fall, New Cadet Hall was wrapped in scaffolding as workers completed the Hokie stone facade.

In October 2016, the view from New Cadet Hall was already impressive. Maroon brick will form the largest “VT” on campus along the sidewalks leading to Alumni Mall.
