What is the Cadet for a Day Program?

It is a program sponsored by the APSU Army ROTC department which brings interested high school students onto our campus to experience a day in the life of one of our cadets.

During Cadet for a Day you will:

  • Go on a campus tour of APSU
  • Learn about scholarship opportunites
  • Eat lunch with ROTC cadets to ask questions about ROTC and APSU

If you have ever considered Army ROTC or are wondering about how you will pay for your college education this program is for you. You will have the opportunity to see what the life of a cadet is like, and have opportunities to have any of your questions asked. There are three Cadet for a Day events held in the fall and spring semester at APSU.
