Congratulations to our Operations Squadron Commander and his Chief,
Cadet Spencer Hise and Matthew Schwarz for being selected for the AFJROTC Flight Academy.
There are easily well over 100,000 cadets enrolled in over 900 units and only 230 cadets were given this VERY RARE opportunity!
An excerpt from attachment below:
"Selected Cadets will attend a summer university program for college credit and the opportunity to earn his/her private pilot certification/license. This is a significant accomplishment. Cadets, your AFJROTC unit, school, and community should be very proud of your selection"

St. Olaf College
Click here for Admissions Info
Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info
Acceptance Rate: 43%
DETAILS: St. Olaf provides a solid liberal arts education and plenty of opportunities to study abroad. One Ole describes her peers at St. Olaf as “Minnesota nice.”
Biology, mathematics, economics, chemistry, and psychology are the most popular majors and some of the school’s best. The music department draws high praise; it offers many performance opportunities with eight school choirs and seven instrumental ensembles. The choirs perform in major venues around the nation and can be heard singing with the Minnesota Orchestra. The Center for Integrative Studies allows students to form their own majors. The Conversation Programs are interdisciplinary, team-taught programs that bring together students and faculty with a broad range of academic interests for a critical exploration of specific topics within their historical, cultural, and social contexts. Programs include the Great Conversation, American Conversations, Asian Conversations, Environmental Conversations, the Science Conversation, and the Public Affairs Conversation. These programs, which can be one to two years in length, “take care of a ton of general requirements, but they are extremely rigorous,” warns one freshman.
Faculty members are highly praised by students. “There are some fantastic professors at St. Olaf, and almost all of them are accessible,” says an English major. Fifty-four percent of classes have fewer than 20 students, and instructors reportedly have as many as 10 hours of open-office time a week. Academically, students have their work cut out for them. “I consider it very rigorous,” admits one junior. Students look forward to the annual, stress-relieving study break where professors serve them ice cream.
SOC Student Perspective: “The typical St. Olaf student is fairly outgoing, extremely involved, and interested in trying new things. Everyone loves meeting new people and supporting one another.”
