“ My time at AU ROTC has been well spent to say the least. I have made some great friends from across the nation through ROTC, LDAC, and Airborne. The knowledge that I now posses due to my experiences with ROTC ensures that I can lead and follow with an effectiveness that can be matched by few in today's society. War Eagle! ”

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.

Cadets around the Auburn University Campus

Cadets are regular students just like everyone else on campus.  Theytake a regular schedule of classes and have an academic major.  Once aweek they meet together as a group for leadership laboratory, along with theirregular ROTC academic class.  During lab they wear military uniforms andconduct military and leadership training.  Students can take ROTC as anelective course, and academic minor, or pursue the entire program, whichculminates in a commission as a Second Lieutenant – an Army officer.  TheWar Eagle Battalion Corps of Cadets has an Academic Mentor Program, whichplaces underclassmen with upperclassmen in the same academic majors.  Theupperclassmen have learned time management and study skills that help themsucceed academically in school and can utilize these traits in may differentareas in life.  These skills are passed on to the underclassmen and setstandards necessary for completing the academic requirements for theirmajors. 

Our cadets develop lasting friendships and learn what TEAM WORK is allabout.  Auburn takes pride in its “small town” atmosphere and that“family” attitude permeates our program.  The Cadet Lounge contains apersonal message box, couches to relax between classes and a Computer Room withInternet connectivity.  In a sense, the ROTC becomes your home away fromhome.
