The Leatherneck Platoon holds a Marine Corps Mess Night. This is to foster comaraderie and Esprit de Corps within the senior class and active duty personnel. It is a formal function where future officers can learn and practice proper etiquette. It is a function which is exclusive to the UT NROTC members in order to foster the "wardroom" mentality among senior battalion members. It is an evolution that underclassmen look forward to when they reach their senior year.
