Our Services

Not all Air Force ROTC detachments are the same, so we would like to introduce you to one of the best, AFROTC Det 172 at Valdosta State University.

We are proud of our activities and academic support program that set us and our enthusiastic cadets who are the backbone of our program, apart.

There are a number of activities from which our cadets benefit:

We have a special group of cadets who sincerely care about each other and work together

The Cadet Tutor Program, which finds tutors for cadets struggling in classes. Academics are our first priority!

Running and weight lifting club

Air Force Base visits and orientation flights on Air Force aircraft

Guest speakers from the Air Force

Quality facilities:

  • Cadet lounge with Kinect, cable TV, snack bar, etc.
  • Cadet workspace with computers, phone, copy machine, and supplies

Recognition through cadet awards and news articles

Strong, active Arnold Air Society, a voluntary, honorary service organization

  • Promote POW/MIA awareness
  • Sponsor events for the cadet corps throughout the year

The detachment is served by an involved cadre of professional officers, non-commissioned officers and a civilian 
who are dedicated and determined to commission high-quality officers for the world's greatest Air Force.

Our cadets come not only from Valdosta, but from three of our cross-town schools which are Park University
(Moody AFB campus), Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (Moody AFB campus), or Georgia Military College (Valdosta campus).

We are located in Barrow Hall on the Valdosta State University, North campus. Please come by anytime and see us,
