The New Student Orientation is our kick-off event for the semester. It is very important to attend this event and get all of the information you need to join our program. You’ll have a chance to ask questions and go over some paperwork. We will also serve a free lunch, and you’ll have a chance to meet several of the current cadre members and cadets. You are welcome to bring your friends/family members with you to learn more about AFROTC at the orientation. If you are unable to make it to the New Student Orientation, please let us know. We will arrange to meet with you individually to make sure you have all of the information you need.
You will find most of your questions answered by visiting our public website, http://airforcerotc.berkeley.edu/index.html, to include program requirements, campus map, directions, and much more.

When & Where
Air Force ROTC Detachment 085
The purpose of Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) is to produce leaders for the Air Force. To accomplish this, the Air Force has established a rigorous training program to prepare you to lead. You’ll learn about Air Force history, core values, leadership and teamwork in both the classroom and the field. You’ll push yourself physically, harder than you’ve ever been pushed before. You’ll learn to think quickly under pressure and to focus on accomplishing your goals. If you successfully complete this program, you’ll become a leader--a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Air Force.
