#12 Corps

All students at the Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College were male and were members of the cadet corps. This arrangement was common with most land-grant universities into 1940s. The corp of cadets is still a very important part of daily life at Virginia Tech. Virginia Tech has one of the largest co-educational corps in the country.
