Cadet Clubs

Cadet Clubs are a great way to get involved and network within the Big Rapids and surrounding areas. All clubs are cadet driven, focused, and executed by students within the program. These clubs focus on expert marksmanship training with the M4 rifle system, firing the pack 75 Howitzer at all home Ferris football games, and demonstrating their discipline through drill and ceremony. 

Participation by cadets is voluntary but also earns cadet’s extra points when submitted for their ranking on the National Order of Merit List.
