RANGER CHALLENGE

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.

PERSHING RIFLES

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.

Creighton University Army ROTC Color Guard

The Color Guard is one of the most noticeable extra curricular activities within the Army ROTC program. Being part of the Cadet Color Guard gives the Cadet the insight into how to properly present the National Colors for selected events throughout the school year. The Color Guard consists of four to five highly motivated Cadets that take pride in the presentation of the National Colors at many events.

This highly specialized team protects and displays the United States colors along with various other colors such as the Nebraska State Flag, The Army colors and the University colors. To become part of this dedicated group of Cadets you must be willing to learn and understand the fundamental movements of Drill and Ceremony, time to practice and participate in the various events for which we present the colors and the pride to do something that others will not do.

Becoming part of the Blackwolves Battalion Color Guard is easily done. You only need to volunteer to do so. Those cadets that perform the best during practices will be selected to represent the Battalion at the various events the color guard will perform at. They have presented at basketball games in front of crowds over 17,000,  NCAA volleyball championships, formal dinners, awards ceremony, commissioning ceremony and other events within the community.
