    In the olden days cadets' lives were governed by the "Regulations for the Interior Police and Discipline of the United States Corps of Cadets" which listed such things as the number of demerits for various breaches of the regulations, as well as directions on how to arrange every article of uniform and equipment
    in the cadet's room ready for inspection. The nickname for the regulation book was the "Blue Book". The only copy I have ever seen dates from the 1920's or 1930's. I get the feeling that things have changed now and that there is no one book with all the regulations in it. Does anybody know where to find, e.g., the room arrangement regulations?

    That would be the USCC SOP, if memory serves.

    Thank you Minor ... the links are to SOP for the Honor Code, and nothing else, as far as I can see. (I have found the same documents/links many times in the past when I Googled them myself, but nothing about general disciplinary regulations or room arrangement.)

    Checked with my son, and there is no current public version online. It changes frequently over time.

    There is a book on room and uniform regulations in every room and the SOP (404 pages of USMA rules) on the internal website but I am not aware of any public online versions.

    This falls into the old "If they wanted you to know, they'd have made it public" category.

    It's more fun that way. The sheer amount of regulations and detail put into an SOP can be entertaining to observe.
