2LT Soboleski is a superb example of the Cadets who make up TASK FORCE DRAGON, Philadelphia’s Army ROTC Consortium. As the former Cadet Battalion Commander, Ranger Challenge Athlete, and Scabbard and Blade Scholar he utilizes the leadership and organizational skills gained from ROTC in all aspects of his life. Just prior to graduation in June of 2011, he had this to say about the program: “What is ROTC to me? Drexel Army ROTC is more than a leadership program that teaches resilience, confidence, and ethics. For the past four years, ROTC has been my home away from home. It has provided me with lifelong mentors and friendships. ROTC has helped me become the man I am today. Drexel Army ROTC is a place where the Army values are demonstrated and developed daily—Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. The Cadre and Cadets in the program work tirelessly to develop each Cadet into competent and innovative Army Officers. They provide the instruction and tools for success, and expect the best. That is what ROTC brings out in students, their very best efforts and qualities.”

WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR

Those who succeed in the Army ROTC program are students who excel and want something more out of the college experience. Generally, these students are scholars who keep their grades up, athletes who are physically strong and leaders who have a great desire to learn.

NURSE PROGRAM

If you're considering an undergraduate Nursing degree, enrolling in Army ROTC can enhance your leadership skills and critical thinking abilities while providing financial support to help make your professional goals a reality.

Being a Nurse in the Army provides you with benefits not found in the civilian world. As an Army Nurse and Officer, you will have the respect of your peers and coworkers, as well as opportunities to train and serve in a variety of specialties.

YOUR COMMITMENT

Army ROTC students who receive an Army ROTC scholarship or enter the Army ROTC Advanced Course must agree to complete a period of service with the Army.

  • You can serve full time in the Army for three years (four years for scholarship winners)
  • Selected Cadets may choose to serve part time in the U.S. Army Reserve or Army National Guard while pursuing a civilian career

It's an experience that you can't get anywhere else, and your leadership skills will be challenged every day. Contact your campus Military Science department for more specific details on your Army ROTC service commitment.

Enrolling in the Army ROTC Basic Course does NOT involve a commitment of service to the Army unless you have received an Army ROTC Scholarship.
