ROTC Cadet training involves classroom instructions on leadership techniques, time management, ethics, critical thinking skills, and military operations. Cadets are provided the opportunity to apply their knowledge and understanding in a field setting during weekly practical exercises called a lab. This provides the opportunity for the cadets to challenge themselves and learn in a safe environment. Labs range from topics covering Drill and ceremony, Land Navigation, squad tactics and with a final culminating event at the end of each semester called Leader stakes. All Labs are designed to develop the knowledge and leadership abilities of the cadets; Labs are run by the Military Science (MS) III class and are generally held for two hours on Thursdays.
