Air Force ROTC at UNH

Can you assign a dollar value to leadership? To confidence? How about a brilliant future and a guaranteed career? One thing you can put a value on is a college scholarship. Beyond that, the benefits of Air Force ROTC are priceless.

Here at the University of New Hampshire, you will find not only a skilled Cadre and extraordinary cadet wing, but also a family. With roughly 50 cadets, you will be able to make friendships that last a lifetime and receive extensive hands-on training. Each semester is comprised of over a dozen exciting and challenging Leadership Labs, orchestrated by an outstanding cadet wing staff. For more information on Leadership Labs, see the tabs on the left.

History of Detachment 475

The “Screamin’ Eagles” have been a part of the University of New Hampshire since ROTC was established. Hundreds of cadets have graduated from the program and commissioned into the world’s greatest Air Force. One of our many esteemed graduates include General Lori Robinson, the first female officer to command a Unified Combatant Command in the United States. If you were a member of this detachment, we would love to hear from you! Please use the Contact Us link, located on the side bar, to get in contact with us.

New Student Orientation Program

At the beginning of each school year, Detachment 475 offers a three-day orientation program for students interested in joining AFROTC at UNH. To accommodate this, potential ROTC cadets are given the benefit of moving in before freshman orientation during the end of August—so you not only get to be one of the first students on campus and beat the rush that happens on move-in day, but you will also get a head start on learning about ROTC. During  orientation, you will get a crash course on things like Air Force customs and courtesies, stationary drill, marching, and life as an officer in the world’s greatest Air Force.

NSOP is cadet-run; this means that our juniors and seniors who have graduated field training organize and carry out this event, along with the volunteer help of our sophomores who are starting their field training preparatory year. The cadets are excited to share their personal experiences within the program and provide insight and answers for curious freshman. It is a great way to meet other students who are also interested in AFROTC, and also to see if our program is a good fit for you.
