Welcome to Detachment 105!  We are excited to provide you with opportunities for personal and professional development while we prepare you to become the best possible Second Lieutenant in the United States Air Force. To start your journey towards officership, you must participate in our yearly New Cadet Orientation. Here, you will learn the proper Air Force Dress & Appearance and Customs and Courtesies, and you will be introduced to basic Drill and Ceremonies; these are the foundation on which you will build the leadership, officership, and management skills necessary for commissioning as an officer in the United States Air Force.

The New Cadet Orientation is a cadet-led introduction to Air Force ROTC life - you will have the opportunity to learn from fellow students what it means to be a cadet.

Parents are welcomed and can participate in a Q&A session with our cadre.



This highly encouraged event will be held on the University of Colorado Boulder campus (DUAN G1B30) on 11 January 2020 and is scheduled from 1000 - 1400. The following table lists the details of the day:
