Cadets are challenged through a multitude of field training exercises.


Cadets are challenged through a multitude of field training exercises.


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.

Military Ball

Every February the Marauder Battalion hosts the Colonel Charles Young memorial dinner and ball. This fun event is planned and put on by the senior level cadets and is open for all members of the Marauder Battalion, their dates, and a host of distinguished guests. The ball gives cadets a chance to socialize with senior members of our military and with each other. Of course, what is a ball without dancing? After the formal portion of the ceremony cadets can get their groove on!

Other Events

Every school year our battalion sponsors a range of social events for our cadets and other members of the university family. These may include outdoor barbeque picnics, Super Bowl parties, paint ball competitions, and other events. ROTC is always doing something. Come join the fun!
