  9. 12. Company K-2 is an all-male , technical, Navy/Marine Corps outfit that prides itself in being &quot;The Best in Every Way.&quot; We are very physical, very intense, demand a lot of our cadets, yet are still known around the quad for being one of the most professional outfits in the Corps. Please feel free to explore the rest of our website and learn about Killer K-2, the hardest in the Corps. Company S-1 was founded in the spring semester of 2006 by Cadet Major Carol Noble and Cadet Captain Justin Hatton as a gender integrated Navy/Marine outfit intended for students with a technical major . Upperclassmen in S-1 are comprised of the finest cadets from all over the Corps who have volunteered their time and energy to produce what has since become one of the most successful units in the Corps. Company S-1 is centered around our core values of knowledge, honor, fraternity, and discipline. We are committed to developing well-rounded cadets that excel academically, physically, and socially throughout their college careers and beyond, whether it be in the military, government, or private sectors.
