The Air Force ROTC LLC provides a means for successfully easing first-year students into the Air Force ROTC program, supporting them as they transition to college life and providing a vital social and professional support network. College life and the ROTC can be a potentially unnerving experience, but the LLC assists with dispelling myths, connecting students to a variety of resources, benefits and beginning the all-important process of establishing esprit de corps and camaraderie. Community members help prepare and motivate one another to achieve greater physical fitness levels, campus involvement and skills to enable academic success. The community produces a critical network of peers who will assist each other throughout their Clemson University and Air Force Careers.

What To Expect

  • Mentoring from supportive upper class cadets

Student Perspective
“We all have the end goal of wanting to become Officers within the Air Force, and we all bonded really quick because we all wanted to help each other succeed and achieve our goals. I’ve made several deep connections through the Living-Learning Community and I’ve made several lifelong friends.”
– Yousuke Matsui
