Especially for parents.
Parents Council Welcome Reception - Friday, 21 August 2015 in Marshall Hall - Center for Leadership and Ethics from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. The VMI Parents Council hosts a Pre-Matriculation Reception for parents of new cadets. Invitations are sent to the incoming cadets and their parents, who accept by returning a response card and pre-paying for the number attending. Tickets are sent directly to the parents.
The deadline for pre-paying for tickets, or canceling and receiving a refund, is 1 August 2015. COL Jeff Boobar, Superintendent’s Liaison to the Parents Council, is the coordinator for this event and he can be contacted for additional information at (540) 464-7072 or BoobarJR@vmi.edu.
Mail, calls, etc. Mail from home is the most important gift a cadet can receive. Be sure to get your new cadet’s box number issued during the Matriculation process in Cameron Hall. An occasional box of favorite foods from home also does wonders for a cadet’s morale. Please do not send cash through the mail. The quickest way to contact a cadet is to leave a message at the VMI Visitor Center (540) 464-7306 or send an email after classes start.
Check Cashing The Cashier’s office (located in Smith Hall) cashes checks up to $200. There are two ATM machines (BB&T) located on post, one in Lejeune Hall PX area and the other is located in the Daniels’ Courtyard (behind Shell Hall).
