The Corps of Cadets is offering in-person and online information sessions this fall.
Spend the Day with the Corps
1-5 p.m. To register online, choose a date:
This is an opportunity to attend (irl!) an information session about the Corps of Cadets and attend a presentation from one of our three ROTC programs —Army, Naval (including the Marine Option), and Air Force (including the Space Force) — or our Citizen-Leader Track before wrapping up with a cadet Q&A session.
Masks are required for the indoor portion of the program. Up-to-date information about Virginia Tech's public health guidelines is available at vt.edu/ready.
We will be walking up small hills on campus and moving between buildings, so please wear comfortable shoes. We also encourage you to bring a water bottle.
