On Saturday December 11th, 8 Cadets (Juan Torres, Dantel Rodriguez, Irvin Penuelas, Luis Sanchez, Prometheus Mitchell, Ciara Lopez, Jose Tapia, and Geraldmy Sauza), SFC Ellison and 1SG Heldt from the Carl Hayden JROTC, Phoenix Arizona spent an exciting morning participating in a campus tour at Grand Canyon University (GCU) Phoenix, Arizona. They toured a classroom, a lecture hall, a dorm room, a campus apartment, the library, the Esports facility, and the bowling alley among other key attractions. The Cadets were hosted by GCU Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (ROTC). The Carl Hayden Cadets and the GCU ROTC Cadets discussed college life, college academics, ROTC scholarships and the requirements to become a commissioned officer in the US Army. The GCU ROTC Cadets spoke about their individual backgrounds and what brought them to GCU. Finally, the Carl Hayden Cadets were given some key insights into what life as a Cadet at GCU is like as well as all of the benefits of being enrolled in GCU ROTC.
