    So I have heard that cadets can sit with people that come to visit them at football games. Can they also hang out with them on campus before the games? I know my parents and a grad that will be doing a lot of tailgating before Army games over the next 4 years, and I was wondering how I could spend my time on those saturdays.

    Probably more time after games than before but a lot will depend on any assigned duties that day. I have been under the impression that cadets had to sit with their companies during games, but that may not be true at Mitchie. I have heard that cadets do have to participate in march on.

    When I visited and watched a game, there were multiple cadets sitting in the regular fan sections, one was even a few people down from me. Somebody told me you were allowed to sit with friends/family at the games. Just wondering what all the privileges are during game day.

    Depends. If you have SAMI, you might be able to go watch the parade with your family. If you're marching, you won't really be able to do anything until after the game.

    Technically, you have to sit in the corps seating area for games. That isn't heavily enforced, but you may run into a TAC or TAC NCO who will tell you to go back and sit with the corps if you try to sneak out to sit with your family

    So different options with different TAC's? The company I visited had a really chill TAC.

    Not really. If the one TAC NCO looking for cadets seated in the wrong section finds you, you're going back to sit with the corps whether your TAC is chill or not.
