Air Force ROTC Detachment 595 will host "Shadow Day," an opportunity for high school seniors and juniors interested in N.C. State University's Air Force ROTC program to come "shadow" a cadet and experience daily life as both a student and cadet. The day begins with attending an informational session with our Detachment Commander in the morning. Then you will accompany a cadet as he or she attends classes and goes to lunch. You will have the opportunity to experience campus and get a feel for the daily routine of being enrolled at N.C. State as a cadet in Air Force ROTC. Finally, you will also have the chance to talk to Active Duty officers of various career fields and learn what opportunities await you if you choose to pursue a career in the United States Air Force!

This fall we will host a Shadow Day; registration for this event is linked below with the event being held October 8, 2014.
