Why VMI?"You can get an outstanding education at any college or university in the country if you are committed and apply yourself. However at VMI, you will gain personal skills and intangible characteristics far beyond what you learn in the classroom. Learning how to set priorities and work under pressure, along with the developing a sense of personal integrity, honor and selfless service is what sets VMI apart from other institutions of higher learning."
