WHAT IS ROTC?
LEADERSHIP THAT LASTS A LIFETIME
Army ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. It gives you the tools, training and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition. Because Army ROTC is an elective, you can participate your freshman and sophomore years without any obligation to join the Army. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be commissioned as an Officer in the Army. At that point, you will have a wide range of interest areas you can specialize in called branches.
“By joining ROTC you are training the most powerful tool you have. Your brain controls everything that you do on a daily basis. ROTC challenges you both mentally and physically. It trains you to become the best officer the Army has to offer. ROTC will give you the leadership you need to be successful is anything you do in life. I apply the leadership skills I learn in ROTC to my job as a Building Manager at my school's Rec Center, on the rugby pitch, and even in everyday problem solving. ROTC opens up many doors to many different experiences. Because of ROTC I was able to go overseas and visit Romania for a month training with the Romanian Military. ROTC also offers extra activities such as Ranger Challenge where you have the opportunity to push your mental and physical toughness to its breaking point and Color Guard where you can show your full pride in the uniform you wear and why you wear it.”
