With the goal of improving campus livability and cadet mental health, a group of cadets is working with faculty and industry to transform the south side patio of Mitchell Hall. They are looking to turn it into a multi-purpose outdoor seating area. The team is developing a comprehensive design for the space, acquiring funding, and submitting proposals to the Academy and State Historic Preservation Office
New academic minor
The aviation minor emphasizes aviation science studies and is the first-ever cadet instituted curriculum change. Topics include aviation weather, aeronautical decision making, and thermodynamics. The goal of this minor is to allow cadets to take ownership of their aviation education within their day-to-day academic lives.
A cadet-led team is developing a centralized directory for all cadet activities such as clubs, teams and squadrons in order to better connect cadets with their interests and their peers. The project aims to improve collaboration and synergy across the Cadet Wing.
Spark teaches cadets how to be open minded problem solvers and strive for improvement. Our cadets are encouraged to use their strengths and interests to guide the innovation process and create lasting results.
