information to make plans for the coming academic year and take
particular care to build in adequate travel time to meet VMI’s
departure and arrival requirements. Cadets may not depart VMI
until their scheduled classes are completed; those with Academic
Days may use them only to extend furlough.

Tuesday afternoon travel, barracks will remain open through
Wednesday morning, Nov. 27, until 11 a.m.
