On September 9th the Midshipman Battalion hosted a ceremony to commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11 together with Marquette's Army and Air Force ROTC detachments.
Every Spring, seniors gather to honor Naval tradition, and to celebrate together prior to commissioning. This year the unit was fortunate enough to hold mess night at the caverns of the Miller Brewing company. The unit would like to thank alumnus Mark Neuwirth for providing a great tour of the brewery facilities as well as arranging the logistics for what was a night for all to remember.
Every Spring the outstanding midshipmen of the battalion are recognized for their efforts at awards day. The ceremony includes a guest speaker and a pass-in-review.
Every Fall the midshipmen compete with each other to see which platoon can claim physical fitness supremacy.
Marines and interested Navy midshipmen gain valuable experience throughout this unique opportunity.
