Detachment 592 hosts Shadow Day every Spring semester. During Shadow Day, prospective cadets can come out to our detachment to learn more about AFROTC, engage with current cadets, witness (and potentially participate) in some of our training operations, and receive a tour of UNCC led by our cadets. If you are interested in coming to UNCC (or one of our crosstown schools), and are thinking about a career in the Air Force, our Shadow Day is for you!

DIRECTIONS & PARKING
Memorial Hall is located on University Rd across from the Cone Parking Deck (see Campus Map). Parking is limited at our detachment and our parking lot is not large enough to accommodate entry/exit of school buses.
For individuals or small groups in Personally Owned Vehicles (POV), you will park in the Cone Visitors Deck (labeled "Cone Deck 2" on the Campus Map). Parking rates are $1 per half hour (capped at $10 per day).
For buses, you will need to drop off visiting students at the University Rd crosswalk near the center of the Cone Parking Deck (labeled "Cone Deck 1") and park/wait in the Town Center Plaza parking lot located at 8600 University City Blvd, Town Center Plaza, Charlotte, NC 28213. We can make arrangements to shuttle drivers to Memorial Hall from Town Center Plaza if necessary.
