Events & Open Weekends
Events are subject to change. During the fall 2020 semester, MMA's campus is closed to guests in order to mitigate the COVID-19 risk for our cadets, faculty and staff.
Open weekends (when your cadet may travel home) are noted above. Cadets in good standing may take two additional open weekends per year.
Key weekends during the academic year require full participation by the MMA Corps of Cadets. In order to promote our team mentality and a sense of responsibility, cadets are not permitted (with few exceptions) to take open weekends during Homecoming, Fall Family Weekend, Commencement Weekend, Valentine Weekend and Spring Family Weekend.
