“ ROTC is a great way to meet great people. Last year we attended a banquet and met all the living recipients of the Medal of Honor, as well as Senator McCain. ”

The Ranger Challenge is an opportunity for schools to "compete" with each other completing military tasks. In addition to a written examination where Cadets test their Army knowledge, there are physical fitness drills and field exercises. Battalions leave a Ranger Challenge with stronger bonds and sharper skills.


The National Society of Pershing Rifles gives Army ROTC Cadets the opportunity to develop to the highest degree possible. Cadets can take part in precision trick rifle drill teams that provide them with the outstanding traits of leadership, military bearing and discipline.

Commissioning Ceremony

The most important day in the career of a cadet is the commissioning ceremony. After receiving their degrees, cadets receive their commission in the Army and earn the rank of a Second Lieutenant.
