Follow four "rooks" as they toil through their first year at the last private military school in America.
Nestled in the mountains of central Vermont, Norwich University is the last private military school in America. Students there not only study a full course load, but undergo a strict regimen of mental, physical and emotional training designed to forge leaders.
While their contemporaries are sleeping in, Norwich students are up at 5 AM and marching ten miles in the predawn chill before breakfast. Why would they choose such an intense and demanding experience? INVESTIGATIVE REPORTSTM follows four "rooks"--freshman recruits--through their first year, from saying goodbye to their parents to the emotional ceremony where they receive official recognition as full-fledged cadets. Through the experiences of these students, CADETS offers a fascinating look at the unique responsibilities and rewards afforded by a military education.
Elite, intense and unrelenting, Norwich University forges adults the old-fashioned way, and CADETS offers a behind-the-scenes look at the process.
