In the Corps
As cadet life is a little bit different than that of a normal college student, there's a lot more to do and a lot more to keep track of. As you proceed further into your AFROTC career, especially the POC, you take on a lot more responsibility. The main goal of the program is to get your degree, so academics always come first but as a cadet you have agreed to take on more tasks than just that of classes. Most of this training occurs during Leadership Laboratory and Physical Training, which is only about four hours a week. Cadets are not always marching, training, or in uniform though, they are still college students and go to football games, hang out with friends, and have fun.
Along with regular Air Force ROTC activities there are numerous extracurricular activities as well. Arnold Air Society is a service oriented, honor society directly endorsed by the Air Force and AFROTC. Silver Wings is another organization devoted to service. This is the sister organization to Arnold Air Society but it allows you to work side by side with civilian members as this organization is open to anyone on campus. All these organizations give extra training, experience, skills, and esprit de corps between cadets, the university, and the community.
