Who are you, and who do you want to become? How do you get there?
These are just a few of the questions discussed during Riverside’s weekly character development convocations. Riverside's Character Development program exists to equip the corps of cadets with the vocabulary and tools to reason morally and think critically about their world. Students are challenged to look deeply at themselves and grapple with tough ethical questions through a series of interactive lectures, multimedia presentations, and live interviews with staff and alumni, all focused on the process of growth from teenage boys into fine young men of character. The sessions are designed to extend the lessons already contained in the academic curriculum and barracks life, and to give cadets explicit examples of ethical behavior in real life contexts while setting the standard for behavior.
