“ ROTC is a great program that teaches you responsibility and how to manage your times. It sets scholastic goals as well as physical goals that keep you in good shape and keep your GPA high. It also provides opportunities to train at Army schools such as airborne school and air assault school. The goals that are set by ROTC give a real sense of purpose and drive to a college student. ”
