Naval Science Lab
All members of the NROTC battalion participate in the Naval Science Lab on Tuesday from 0630 until 0745 and 1530-1645.  The Naval Science Lab is designed to cover professional topics that are not covered in some other area of the NROTC program.  Some of these topics include:  war games, close order drill, inspections, ceremonies, classes on general military subjects, etc.
 
Marine Physical Training (PT)
All Marines and Marine-Option Midshipmen participate in Marine PT on Monday and Thursday from 05:45 until 0700.  Our PT program is progressive and ranges from a 3-mile run and calisthenics to running up to 6 miles in boots with a rifle, helmet and war-gear.  The goal of our PT program is to introduce our candidates to a lifestyle of physical fitness and to prepare students for the rigors of Combat within the Operating Forces.
 
Semper Fidelis Society
This organization is comprised of students who are pursuing a commission in the U.S. Marine Corps while completing their undergraduate degree. All Marines and Marine-option students in Auburn's NROTC may become members of the society.  "Semper Fidelis," Latin for "Always Faithful," seeks to strengthen the core values of honor, courage and commitment, that the nation expects of men and women who aspire to be Marines.  Meetings alternate between "business meetings" and informal social gatherings.
 
Summer Training
All scholarship midshipmen attend summer training between academic years.  MECEP students attend Officer Candidate School prior to their first academic year.  During the summers, MECEP students will attend classes.  College Program (non-scholarship) midshipmen only attend Officer candidate school following their junior year.
