Parker Litts (Pre-Junior Cadet, International Business Major)

“ In addition to studying International Business, I have the opportunity of a unique college experience. Drexel University has given me the chance to hone my leadership skills. I currently serve as a LeBow College of Business Peer Leader, Resident Assistant, and Army ROTC Cadet. Although ROTC has been challenging and demanding, I have already seen a transformation in myself as a leader. In my experience so far, I have been trained in a variety of skills including land navigation, marksmanship, and squad level tactics. Last summer, I traveled to Fort Knox, KY for the thirty-day Leaders Training Coarse (LTC). Throughout the course, we participated in battle drill simulations, CBRN (Hazardous Environment) training, and platoon-sized tactical exercises. Army ROTC promotes experiential learning in physical conditioning, academia, teamwork, and leadership. My favorite aspect of the program is being surrounded by my service-oriented peers and cadre. ”

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.

The specific skills you receive in Army ROTC will include things like leadership development, military skills and adventure training. This will take place both in the classroom and in the field, but you will have a normal daily schedule like all college students. Army ROTC has two phases: Basic Course and Advanced Course.
