The Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets is full of traditions. One of these traditions is new cadet week. Every year, the week before school starts, incoming freshman cadets arrive to begin their training. Over the course of one week, they are taught the basic skills of being a member of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets. For the next year, they work to refine their skills and knowledge to become the confident professionals that the corps is known for, but it all starts with new cadet week.
