This ceremony, in which the new Officers take their commissioning oaths, marks the end of a four-year journey of education, training, and self-discovery and the beginning of a journey of military service. 

Following the formal oath ceremony, each ROTC component will conduct individual "pin on" ceremonies in designated areas on VMI Post in accordance with their service traditions.

Branch-specific pinning ceremonies will be in the following locations:

  • Army ROTC – Marshall Hall (Center for Leadership & Ethics)
  • Naval ROTC – Cameron Hall
  • Air Force ROTC – Jackson Memorial Hall
