Virginia Tech Giving Day 2022
Corps of Cadets
Video: New Cadet Week at Virginia Tech

The nearly 1,100 cadets who make up today's Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets are called to a life of service.

A significant part of the university since its establishment in 1872, the Corps offers cadets a 24/7 leadership development experience within a military-style environment. It's a unique path, rich in history and tradition and rooted in character.


We are more than military leaders. Our cadets will go on to serve in the private and public sectors, using their global vision and ethics to enact change in their communities and beyond.

Your partnership is critical to our mission

The true strength of the Corps is the commitment of our friends and alumni. We are grateful for your continued participation in alumni events, mentoring and internship opportunities, and philanthropy.


Your gift to the Commandant's Priorities Fund through Virginia Tech's Giving Day will support leadership lessons for our cadets, empower their dreams to live a life of service, and ensure that the Corps continues to grow stronger and offer relevant experiences. Philanthropy supports critical initiatives that go beyond just turning on the lights and falling out for formation and parades.

Leadership takes teamwork. No one knows that better than you. Be a part of our team through Giving Day.
