During the 1948-49 school year, a Cadet Club and Rifle Team were organized along with the inaugural Military Ball at East Carolina. The first commissioning ceremony in 1950 involved 30 cadets. The program was initially housed in the Old Austin building before moving into the Whichard Building in 1968. It is currently housed on the 3rd floor of the Wright Building. Classroom instruction is provided by active duty personnel and awards scholarships to many of the cadets.
