Arkansas State University

“ Arkansas State University at Beebe has added a new class to the class listings. ASU Jonesboro is sponsoring Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) on the Beebe campus beginning fall 2005. As an Army Officer you will be leading the best our country has to offer. ROTC provides potential leaders with the challenges necessary in building strong character and leadership skills imperative to success in today’s Army and civilian markets. Army Officers are heavily recruited by industry because of their proven leadership skills. R.O.T.C. is the first step in developing these skills. Many people do not consider the option of earning a commission. There are many reasons for this but I feel the primary reason is that people do not have accurate information. The military requires most of the skills that are required in the civilian sector. We have doctors, lawyers, comptrollers, pilots, vets, and the traditional jobs associated with the military. I invite you to contact me or any member of our team at 870-972-2064, or e-mail rotcgoldbar@astate.edu. ”

LEADERSHIP

In Army ROTC you will learn to become a leader-not just a person who gives orders but a person who leads by example. Being an Officer in the U.S. Army means you're a counselor, a strategist and a motivator. It's similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an Officer, you will lead other Soldiers in all situations and adjust to environments that are always changing. You'll be driven to achieve success with your team on every mission.
