AFROTC Visit Options

If you would like to learn more about Air Force ROTC at Detachment 410, please consider coming to campus for a visit and detachment tour with us. In addition, we will host our annual Open House on February 17, 2020, which is led by the cadet wing!

We offer three visit options: Group, Individualized and Phone. Group and Individualized Visits last about an hour and include a tour of our facilities and a review of a PowerPoint presentation that will answer many of your questions. If available, you will have the chance to hear from current cadets.

Group Campus Visits

Every week we host on-campus recruiting visits on Thursday at 12:45 p.m. and Friday at 10:00 a.m. for interested students and their families. We leave time for questions and it can be beneficial to hear questions other students/parents have.
