VMI Alumni Review
The official publication of The VMI Alumni Association, the Alumni Review is published four times a year. It is mailed to all VMI alumni, parents and friends without a subscription fee. For nearly 85 years, the Review has kept graduates of VMI informed with news of events and activities on Post, articles that keep the Institute’s heritage alive, and most importantly, class notes that help maintain lifetime connections.
Each class elects a class agent to act as the communication focal point, assist in reunion planning and write class notes for the Alumni Review. The class agent names and addresses appear in the Class Notes section of the magazine, or you may e-mail the Alumni Review staff for contact information.
Job Changes, Marriages, Births, Deaths
Let us know about job promotions or changes, advanced degrees, marriages, births or the death of an alumnus by e-mail or by mail at: VMI Alumni Review, PO Box 932, Lexington, VA24450.
