The buzz around Lexington does not center around this latest group of rats at Virginia Military Institute.
That's because NEW traditions would most likely start NEXT year.
If the school remains state- funded it will be forced to accept women.
So while the class of 2000 was introduced to the VMI experience, school officials were wondering how that experience might change.

While major changes haven't happened yet, there were some new wrinkles added to this year's matriculation.
All 405 rats got their hair cut on the same day-- they had been spread out over a few days in years past.
And there was no yelling... at least not yet.
But the most significant changes had nothing to do with cadets.
Forty- five new faculty members converged on a 500 acre reserve in Craig County.
They'll spend 2 and a half days getting to know each other, while participating in a variety of activities.
