Formation is held three days a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 0720 on the campus quad, and on special occasions as needed. It is the established time for the entire student body to come together.
The purpose of formation is to instill responsibility, pride, attention to detail, and a strong work ethic in every cadet. Personnel inspections are an important aspect of formation to ensure Cadets are adhering to proper uniform and grooming standards. Also, by providing general and group specific announcements, Cadets can stay informed about activities and events that are pertinent to campus life. All Cadets are required to participate in formation.
