Why Corps Life?
Private support for VMI’s distinctive leadership training impacts every area of the VMI experience and the rigorous traditions we hold in the highest regard. VMI’s military system and citizen-solider ethos encourages military service, improves training facilities, expands athletic opportunities, and supports those who help cadets develop as leaders.
The religious convictions of our cadets are respected regardless of one’s faith preference, and the religious freedom of all cadets is assured through the Chaplain’s Office.
Introducing cadets to the responsibilities and rewards of leadership and fostering the development of integrity and self-discipline through the class and regimental systems is integral to VMI’s uncommon purpose. Gift to the Leadership Training Fund will enhance these efforts.
Clubs and Organizations
Cadets are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities and clubs. Clubs are an opportunity to serve, compete and develop leadership skills. Extracurricular options include marksmanship club, Regimental Band, search and rescue squad, The Bomb Yearbook, fishing club, Ranger Challenge, firefighters and many more.
Club and Intramural Sports
Gifts to the Club and Intramural Sports Fund support the sound physical fitness and leadership opportunities across the Corps. Club sports change from year to year, but may include: Boxing, men’s and women’s rugby, basketball, marathon, trap and skeet, powerlifting and more.
