The third major agency of student government at VMI is the Cadet Regiment, made up of two battalions of four rifle companies each plus the regimental band. The basic structure of the corps is that of an infantry unit, and all cadets drill as infantry troops under their own leaders.
On the basis of demonstrated qualities of leadership and proficiency in military and academic studies, cadets are appointed to non-commissioned and commissioned cadet rank. The First Captain, as the highest-ranking cadet, commands the regiment. A major share of the administration of the Corps of Cadets is entrusted to cadet officers and their staffs.
