New Cadet Orientation

New Cadet OrientationCadets work to complete Land Navigation.

New Cadet Orientation is a comprehensive four day training event focused on preparing new students for success in ROTC. We typically visit Fort Custer, Michigan, and focus on fundamental military training skills from Drill and Ceremony to Basic Rifle Marksmanship. New cadets are introduced to Land Navigation techniques and develop leadership skills during the Leader's Reaction Course and Confidence Obstacle Course. The Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) is administered for scholarship contracting. 

If you wish to participate in New Cadet Orientation, please fill out the Enrollment Forms (Numbers 1-7) and e-mail to CPT Kyle Vonderheide at kvonderh@nd.edu.
