New Cadet Orientation (NCO)



If you are entering your freshman year and want to be in AFROTC, the Flyin’ Irish are hosting a New Cadet Orientation (NCO) from 13-17 August 2017.  NCO is a five day introduction to basic military life, an incredible opportunity to meet other new cadets and get a head start into your first semester in ROTC.  You will learn basic military customs and courtesies, marching, drill, and the cadet leadership structure. During NCO, you will also begin to understand what it means to become an Air Force cadet, and the opportunities open to you as you work to become an Air Force officer upon college graduation.  You will also get to move into your dorm room on 17 Aug,  a day early!  Please check the links below for more information and registration materials.  If you have any questions at all, please contact the Detachment staff at:
