Corps Reunion 2023
Corps Reunion 2023: Sept. 8-10
If you can only make it back to Blacksburg for one event this year, come back for Corps Reunion! This is a special year for the Corps of Cadets as we celebrate many achievements and milestones, which include the 50th anniversary of women in the Corps, the grand opening of the Cadet Leadership and Military Sciences (CLMS) Building, and the induction of Class of 1973 into the Old Guard. Spend a family-friendly and immersive weekend with the Corps of Cadets as we indoctrinate the youngsters, reunite with old friends and buds, and march onto Worsham Field as we host the Purdue Boilermakers for the first time!
