Va Tech Cadet

Virginia Tech

-- Corps of Cadets Option --
The Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets of about 600 graces this land grant university, whose total student population is over 20,000. Since its inception, the Corps has provided future leaders for the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Nation. Army, Air Force and Navy (with Marine Corps option) ROTC are available. Students who choose to be in the Corps live in a full-time military environment, but take all their academic courses along with civilian students. The first year (formerly "Rat Year" but now "New Cadet Year") is especially demanding. Generous scholarships are available to qualified Corps members. All ROTC students must also be in the Corps. But some students elect to be in the Corps but not pursue ROTC.

Virginia Military Institute

All students at VMI are in the Corps of Cadets, and find themselves engaged in a very vigorous military lifestyle. Especially challenging to the new student is the freshman ("Rat") year. Army, Air Force, and Navy (with Marine Corps option) ROTC are available. The small student body of about 1000 is quite close. And VMI has now decided to admit women. Graduates do especially well in a variety of fields after graduation, and have made VMI one of the best-endowed schools (per capita) in the country. Take a look at VMI's HomePage.


Mary Baldwin College - Virginia Women's Institute for Leadership

-- Corps of Cadets Option --
This very special program at Mary Baldwin College features the world's only all-woman Corps of Cadets. The program was originally associated with Virginia Military Institute -- which is still where the VWIL cadets take ROTC -- earning them commissions in the armed forces. Note that this corps of cadets is an entirely independent operation within Mary Baldwin College, and that members of the Corps share the MBC campus with civilian students. Consider the Virginia Women's Institute for Leadership at Mary Baldwin College.

From the Blackhawk War to Operation Desert Storm, Norwich graduates have served their country with valor in times of national crisis. The freshman ("Rook") year is especially demanding. Members of the Corps of Cadets share the Norwich campus with civilian students. Numerous scholarships are available. Examine the Norwich U. HomePage.
