The typical weekly schedule for an Army cadet includes physical training, academic instruction, and hands-on field instruction.
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, cadets meet at 6:30AM (0630 in military time!) to conduct physical exercise in order to develop, enhance, and challenge each cadet’s physical abilities. Exercises often consist of distance running, sprinting, endurance workouts for the chest and abdominal muscles, crossfit training, rope climbing, and the standard push-ups and sit-ups–a cadet’s condition will be tested each term in the Army Physical Fitness Test. This development and testing of physical endurance is a crucial part of the cadet’s future Army career.
Cadets attend classes just like their fellow students, but their schedule is augmented with an exclusive course on leadership offered by the Military Science Department. Cadets attend the following courses:
Cadets also take a course on American Military History to satisfy their ROTC course requirements. Here, cadets will undergo situational training exercises (STX), land navigation practice, and other valuable, exciting training events. Finally, cadets function within their own chain of command, serving in leadership positions to supervise, develop, and assist their peers. Each cadet is assigned a mentor from the preceding class, creating a network of trust and advice that other students do not experience.
