Al Thompson (Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs), Marty Loy (Dean of the College of Professional Studies), Daron Montgomery (Director of Athletics), Prof. Eleonora Redaelli (Arts Management/Public Relations) and Inna Mazhirina (Foreign Languages) joined ROTC cadets and students in Advanced Physical Fitness (MSL 154) at 6 a.m. for an hour-long physical training session in the Multi-Activity Center.
The experience was equally beneficial for both cadets and their guests. “It was incredible,” said Thompson. “The opportunity to take an hour and see them working out and seeing how much they do, but I wouldn’t want to do this every day.”
“It’s extremely important to have faculty understand what we’re doing, why we’re doing it and the skills and leadership value we’re building,” said Cadet Katie Steffanides ’12.
