To create an alumni experience event:

  • As a part of our new Alumni Experience initiative, we want to encourage and support Cadets Alumni gatherings nationwide! If you would like to help us host an event in your area, or have an idea for an event or fundraiser, please let us know. Events can include pre- or post-show reunions, tailgate parties, mixers, holiday-related gatherings, and much more! Help us get creative and celebrate our rich history together.
  • To suggest an event, please e-mail the details to ALUMNI@CADETS.ORG, and a member of The Cadets Alumni Experience Committee will work with you to create a web page that can be used to advertise your event through all of our media channels.
  • Once an advertisement page is created, it will be forwarded to The Cadets’ administration for final content approval to ensure there are no date conflicts.
  • Once an event has been approved, it will be displayed on all our media channels:
    • cadets.org/alumni
      • Combined Cadets and Alumni Calendar (coming soon!)
    • The Cadets Alumni Facebook Group
    • All The Cadets’ Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)
    • E-mail newsletters
