C1C - First-Class Year- Seniors - Firsties
As a first-class cadet, you’ll serve as a cadet officer in leadership positions throughout the cadet wing. You’ll practice your leadership skills by leading and supervising the professional development of the lower three cadet classes. Your leadership experiences will be invaluable when assuming the responsibilities of a second lieutenant. The first-class CE is designed to prepare you for commissioning as a second lieutenant in the United States Air Force. Thus, you’ll learn basic, “need-to-know” information for prospective officers.

100th Night for the First Class Cadets takes place approximately 100 nights before graduation. It is an opportunity for the First Class Cadets to join with the Legacy Class to celebrate 100 days until graduation and their commissioning as Second Lieutenants in the United States Airforce. Cadets also receive their base assignments and are given liberty for the weekend to celebrate.
Graduation day is the culmination of their time at the Academy. Each graduate will commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Air Force.
