Welcome to Air Force ROTC Detachment 780 in Brookings, South Dakota. As an Air Force ROTC cadet at South Dakota State University (SDSU), Dakota State University (DSU), Augustana University (AU), or the University of Sioux Falls (USF), we are proud to offer you an exceptional opportunity to embark on a positive and life-changing journey in our program and possibly in the United States Air Force.

Whether you are a high school senior, college freshman, or have already completed some college, we're looking for motivated achievers who are willing to work hard and learn the skills needed to balance academics, physical fitness, community service, and participation in the cadet wing. Our cadet wing is full of students who are passionate about serving others and defending the United States' interests in air, space, and cyberspace. 

Our Air Force instructors, also known as cadre, are dedicated to recruiting, training and retaining our nation's best and brightest young men and women to serve as commissioned officers. If there is anything we can do to enhance your knowledge of AFROTC and our detachment, please contact us by email, phone or questionnaire as soon as possible!
