Logo & Shield usage


The Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets shield must be used as often as possible with the Virginia Tech master brand logo in a separate imprint area. When using the full-color Corps logo, use an all-black Virginia Tech master brand logo. When using the all-black or all-white Corps logo, use either an all-black, all-white, or an approved color combination of the Virginia Tech master brand logo as directed in the university Brand Guidelines.

Shield Usage

  • The shield, used without the words, “Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets” and “Ut Prosim” may only be used as a social media icon, as part of the Corps of Cadets Major General W. Thomas Rice Center for Leader Development logo, on the battalion flags, and Cadre t-shirts.
  • All social media handles must include “VT” in the name.
  • The shield alone is permitted for small items where the entire logo would not fit, such as on a lapel pin.
