Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets move into dorms
BLACKSBURG (WSLS 10) - Students at Virginia Tech start school in about a week, but some are getting a head start moving into their dorms.
Nearly 400 freshmen in the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets moved into their new homes on campus Saturday.
The freshmen will be training for a week, learning how to use a rifle and all the essentials of being a cadet.
Upperclassmen are glad to be able to help the students transition. "It feels surreal, honestly, to be welcoming the freshmen, as a senior now, said Corps of Cadet member Tiffany Borden. "It feels like yesterday I was here a a freshman. My dad texted me today and said don't forget to say goodbye for the first time. Don't be afraid to hug a crying mom. It's awesome."
The incoming freshmen will have a parade next Saturday to show their parents what they have learned.
