If you are interested in the AFROTC program hosted by UNC – Chapel Hill, please contact us. We would be more than happy to answer any questions via email, phone, or sit down in-person. We can even put you in touch with a current Det 590 cadet to give you a first-hand account of the program and cadet life.
“I decided to join Det 590 on a whim right before my freshman year of college. I decided to “try it out” since both my parents served in the AF. After a few months in the program, I knew that I made the right decision. Each of my favorite college memories have been alongside my peers in AFROTC. We have shared so many amazing memories in the program that I will cherish forever. One of my favorite memories in AFROTC was the base visit we went on my freshman year to Air Combat Command. This was the first time that I spent time with my classmates outside of PMT events and we were able to bond and learn so much about each other. In addition, I was able to experience what the AF is like outside of the AFROTC bubble. It was one of the events that showed me that I was where I needed to be. I have been so blessed to have amazing peers to grow with throughout my AFROTC journey and to have them as lifelong friends. It makes me eager to enter active duty and see where the Space Force is going to take me as a person and as a leader”.
“ROTC is where I learned how to be a leader and how to take charge. I had experience from a high school student leadership position I once held, but the lessons and skills I learned back then pale in comparison to what ROTC has taught me. I don’t worry about the future because I have learned how to trust in my abilities as the leader of my own life. While I’ll never expect perfection from my life, ROTC has taught me how to give perfect effort and to aim high!”
