First-year cadets and their training cadre trace in the fall the first half of the 26-mile journey Addison Caldwell, Virginia Tech’s first student, made in 1872. They complete the second half in the spring.
Many alumni, families, and friends support the first-year cadets as they march as Caldwell March sponsors. Anyone who donates $500 or more to the Commandant’s Priorities Fund automatically becomes a sponsor.
To honor a specific cadet, include his or her name in the comment section of the online gift form at givingto.vt.edu/corps.
To become a spring 2019 sponsor, donations must be received by April 14. Please call 540-231-2892 for more information.
