Each week in ROTC is slightly different. Regularly scheduled events are held at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) in the mornings before regular classes begin, eliminating time conflicts.
Group exercise is twice weekly at 6:15am. The physical training program is lead by upper class-men cadets, and is supervised for safety by active-duty Air Force Officers.
Cadets participate in a weekly Leadership Lab where they get the opportunity to apply the skills they learn during class.
Cadets will take a one to three credit class throughout their ROTC career introducing the Air Force and leadership, aviation history, management and leadership, and special skills necessary for an active duty officer.
AFROTC encourages and provides a wide variety of professional, athletic, and social activities including:
- Professional Development Training
- During the summer, cadets may volunteer to participate in these and other Air Force paid programs. Availability of these programs varies each year.
- Base Visit
- A visit to an operational Air Force base somewhere in the United States is planed each year to allow cadets to see life in the Air Force first hand.
- Arnold Air Society
- A student-run organization that performs community service, and gives opportunities to develop your professional abilities.
- Sturdy Wings
- Sturdy Wings is our Booster Club.
- The Air Force ROTC detachment can have a university intramural team for every sport.
- Social Functions
- A wide variety of activities from formal military dining-outs, to informal picnics and pizza parties.
- Color Guard
- Performs at ceremonies, sporting events, and parades for the universities and local community.
