Southern Illinois University Carbondale
Between Leadership Lab, Class, Physical Training, and Field Training Exercises, cadets become skilled in soldier tasks from basic tactics to drill and ceremonies. These priorities do not detract from the number one priority—Academics. Academics are the priority for both students and faculty. Many cadets do their homework for all subjects in the Army ROTC Cadet House. It is located close to Kesnar Hall on Campus and has internet availability and plenty of room to work. It is available at all hours for cadets to use and enjoy.
