A day in the life
Cadets awaken and prepare for the coming day. On Sunday,
Reveille is at 0700 for a day of rest and spiritual renewal.
Physical training (PT)
Physical training is conducted three days per week, either with one of the ROTC units or as Corps PT led by a cadet physical training instructor.

Cadets without an 0800 class have time for showers, personal hygiene
and preparing their room and uniform. Those with an 0800 class will eat
breakfast in the Wise Campus Center.

This is the heart of the academic day. Cadets attend classes
according to their schedules.

Additional Corps training
This is the primary period for cadet leaders to facilitate training based
on the published Rook Training Program of Instruction (POI).
Mandatory study time
Mandatory study hall. Cadets work in their rooms, an academic building
or the library to prepare for the next day. This supports the primary
mission of each cadet in the Corps—high academic achievement.
Cadets must either go to bed or study quietly at their desks.
