“ Leading the lifestyle of a cadet means being more disciplined and better prepared for the real world than the average college student. It’s an exciting life that motivates you to accomplish the goals in your life. ”

Cadet Adrian Nelson,Savannah Georgia

See how interesting college can be when you're a part of Army ROTC. You'll be a college student first and foremost, just like the rest of the student body, but there's a key difference: you'll have even more opportunities to succeed.

These opportunities include Field Training Exercises (FTXs) in the spring and fall where Cadets build their teamwork and leadership skills. Cadets also participate in Physical Training (PT) on a regular basis to keep up their strength and endurance.

In addition, each battalion has its own unique calendar of events and activities.
