Corps of Cadets
A day in the life
- Cadets awaken and prepare for the coming day. On Sunday, Reveille is at 0700 for a day of rest and spiritual renewal.
- Physical training (PT)
- Physical training is conducted three days per week, either with one of the ROTC units or as Corps PT led by a cadet physical training instructor.
- Cadets without an 0800 class have time for showers, personal hygiene and preparing their room and uniform. Those with an 0800 class will eat breakfast in the Wise Campus Center.
- Class time
- This is the heart of the academic day. Cadets attend classes according to their schedules.
- Cadets eat lunch as academic schedules allow.
- Extracurricucular activities
- During this extracurricular period, cadets may participate in varsity intercollegiate athletics, Corps specialty units, student club activities or ROTC-oriented specialty training.
- Cadets attend a sit-down dinner in the campus center.
- Additional Corps training
- This is the primary period for cadet leaders to facilitate training based on the published Rook Training Program of Instruction (POI).
- Mandatory study time
- Mandatory study hall. Cadets work in their rooms, an academic building or the library to prepare for the next day. This supports the primary mission of each cadet in the Corps-high academic achievement.
- Lights out
- Cadets must either go to bed or study quietly at their desks.
