Shadow Day


Detachment 592 hosts Shadow Day every Spring semester. During Shadow Day, high school juniors and seniors are invited out to our detachment to learn more about AFROTC, engage with current cadets, witness (and potentially participate) in some of our training operations, receive an official UNCC campus tour, and more! 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!

Shadow Day at UNC Charlotte through Detachment 592 has been canceled. 

The University of North Carolina system has received direction to minimize social contact. As part of this mitigation plan, all departments are switching to online classes as much as possible due to COVID-19. As an additional mitigation consideration, gatherings of 50 people have been prohibited on campus. Due to this temporary restriction, unfortunately, we have to cancel Shadow Day.

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 $5 for the first hour ($2 each additional hour; Capped at $15 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 lot 27 off of Alumni Way labeled on the campus map. We can make arrangements to shuttle drivers to Memorial Hall from Lot 27 if necessary.
