STUDENTS FIRST, CADETS SECOND, SUCCESSFUL ALWAYS
Interested in finding out what other Cadets think of the Temple University ROTC Battalion? Here's where you can learn about the ROTC experience from motivated students just like you.
Each Spring semester, the Cadets attire in their Class A uniform to attend a formal military dining event. During the Spring of 2011, the event was held at The Union League in Philadelphia, PA.
These events teach the Cadets the aspects of professional etiquette during formal events. While throughout the semester the Cadets are trained on the aspects of being a profound leader, the most important aspect, networkability, is applied at the end of the year. During the event, Cadets are allowed to bring a date, and the graduating Cadets are presented with their branch pins. Many Cadets look back and realize that these and most of the ROTC events are the most memorable and valuable activities during their college career.
