Corps of Cadets alumni are serving in all branches of the military around the world.
Virginia Tech is one of only three public institutions in the United States to offer full-time military and civilian student lifestyles. The others are Texas A&M and North Georgia College and State University. The corps annually commissions about 80 percent of its graduates. VMI, the Citadel, and Texas A&M commission 35 to 50 percent.
Four hundred twenty-one cadets entered in fall 2012 for New Cadet Training to push the overall corps to more than 1,000 cadets, the largest regiment since 1968.
