The University of Arkansas's Army ROTC program held its Dining In on Saturday, March 10. Cadets elected to change recent program traditions by opting for a Dining In instead of the more frequently held Military Ball.

The Dining In was held at the local restaurant, Noodles. It was an exclusive event attended by only cadets and instructors. The Dining In is a ceremony designed to strengthen camaraderie and release day to day stress through humorous entertainment.

Cadets learned about traditions such as: the Grog ceremony and the rules of the mess. The event also celebrated the accomplishments of the graduating class with a senior video. The night was capped off by a presentation of peer decided awards.
