The Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets will welcome members of the Class of 1967 back to campus with a pass in review at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 20.

The Highty-Tighties will play, and Skipper, the Corps of Cadets cannon, will be fired at the first note of the National Anthem and the first note of “Tech Triumph.” There will be two shots total — the first at about 4:10 p.m. and the final shot at about 4:30 p.m. 

Everyone is welcome to watch these events. Those not in uniform should remove hats and place right hand over heart anytime the flag is raised or lowered or the National Anthem is played.
