Diversity it was makes our cadets great.  Everyone gets along; from the new cadets up to the MSIV’s.  Having the other branches in close proximity is a plus and allows every to see what the others are up to.  A wide range of events are available for everyone to participate in; whether just to have fun, gain extra credit, fulfill a project requirement or class requirement.  The Wildcat Battalion is made of University students and Pima Community College students.
