That really is the only word to describe the spring semester and the impact of COVID-19 on the world.
On March 11, midway through spring break, Virginia Tech announced plans to move all classes online, then canceled all spring (and eventually summer) events and slowly began to move campus to essential operations only.
The Corps of Cadets thanks everyone — cadets, our staff, alumni, friends — for their patience and their perseverance through these times.
And, finally, thank you to all our alumni who participated in a letter-writing campaign to help celebrate our senior cadets. We received more than 280 letters plus challenge coins, unit patches, Virginia Tech items, T-shirts, rank insignia, and other treasures that were all repackaged and mailed off to our 226 members of the Class of 2020.
