Welcome to NC State Virtual Zoom Shadow Day Registration!  Are you interested in becoming an Air Force officer? Are you interested in attending North Carolina State University? If so, then feel free to sign up for Detachment 595’s Virtual Shadow Day! Det 595 hosts a Shadow Day every semester that provides the opportunity for High School juniors, seniors, and even college students to learn about the Air Force and Air Force ROTC. 

This outstanding opportunity is a chance for students to learn about life as an Air Force officer and as an Air Force ROTC cadet. The event will be taking place over Zoom from 6:45 AM to 10:30 AM on 7 April 2021. A break for breakfast will be allotted. At Shadow Day, students will get the chance to hear and ask questions from active cadets about what student/cadet life is like and hear about some of the amazing opportunities AFROTC has. NC State, home of the Wolfpack, is extremely excited to host and welcome our guests to this year's exceptional event. See you all April 7th, and Go Pack!

You can email the Cadet Recruiting Officer and Cadet Recruiting Officer Deputy any    questions you would like to have asked and we will be sure to ask them during the questions section.

    No. NC State is the host university for Det 595, but we invite all students interested in our program, including those interested in our cross town universities (Peace University, Shaw University, Meredith University, and Saint Augustine’s University) to attend.

  • Question: Will any of Shadow Day be in person this semester?
    No. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 this semester the entirety of Shadow Day will be taking place virtually over Zoom.
