Alumni Weekend not to be missed

RSVP today for Aug. 4-7 events

RSVP Today

Just as the Corps readies itself for the stretch run, The Cadets Alumni are pulling out all the stops to gather to celebrate this year’s edition of the Maroon & Gold and the 76 years of previous history at an amazing set of events scheduled for Aug. 7 at The Cadets home show at New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

The corps has been mixing it up with The Cavaliers, Blue Devils and Carolina Crown — and the Tour of Champions Grand Finale is the only time these four corps will face each other before the world championships.

Want to see what the Tour of Champions is all about? Check out this video.

Here’s the run-down of events for the day:
