The Corps of Cadets teaches leadership within the framework of a military organization. The Corps has its own distinctive uniform, dedicated residence halls and dining facility, the Sam Houston Sanders Corps of Cadets Center-a museum-like meeting hall-and its own unique organizations. All cadets are assured of availability of on-campus housing, an added benefit of Corps membership. Students who join the Corps enjoy a ‘best of both worlds’ atmosphere, living in a military academy environment while attending classes with the rest of their fellow students at a contemporary major university.
Cadet commissioned and non-commissioned officers direct the daily Corps routine, under supervision of the Commandant of Cadets and his staff. The Corps lives together in cadet units, holds daily formations, marches to meals, conducts marching drills and physical training, and participates in other military-style activities.
