Only capitalize “cadets” when used as a title (Cadets Sanderson and Salazar) or as part of the phrase “Corps of Cadets,” not as a common noun (The cadets leave for winter furlough after their last exam.).


Capitalize “Corps” when used alone to refer to the entire unit of cadets.

Corps Day

Corps Day is a weekend in March celebrating the college’s founding. While the college was founded in December 1842, it wasn’t until March 20, 1843, that the first cadets reported. The anniversary is therefore calculated using 1843. In 2018, the college will be 175 years old.
