Virginia Military Institute (VMI) is a public senior military college in Lexington, Virginia. It is the oldest public senior military college in the nation. In the 2015 U.S. News & World Report rankings, VMI is ranked fourth nationally in the “Top Public Schools, National Liberal Arts Colleges” category.

 

History 

Following the War of 1812, the Commonwealth of Virginia built several arsenals, one of them being Lexington. The presence of soldiers was beginning to become a nuisance, so Lexington attorney and the Franklin Society advocated for a school with military discipline and education.

 

Virginia Military Institute would eventually contribute to the development of the state and trained officers for the state’s militia. In 1968, it was the last public college in Virginia to admit black cadets. The same with admitting women in 1997.

 

Academics & Campus

The 134-acre campus included the Virginia Military Institute Historic District, designated as a National Historic Landmark District. Standing on the site of the old arsenal is The Old Barracks, also designated a National Historic Landmark. All cadets are required to live on campus in the barracks. The Institute offers 23 minor and 14 major areas, including engineering, liberal arts, humanities, and the sciences.

 

The age range for prospective cadets must be from 16 to 22 years old. Other requirements include: no legal dependents, unmarried, and physically fit for the Reserve Officer Training Corps. VMI Alumni have impressive resumes such as Secretary of the Army, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, Pulitzer Prize winners, an Academy Award winner, and lots more.

 

Virginia Military Institute is home to 50+ school-sponsored organizations and clubs like recreational activities, musical and performance groups, religious organizations, and service groups.
