“ The physical fitness training that we do in Army ROTC is challenging and fun at the same time. I have seen great improvement in myself physically in just a short period of time. This has been a tremendous boost to my confidence. ”

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 plan, organize and participate in several social events throughout the Fall and Spring Semesters to celebrate accomplishments and camaraderie.

Leadership Experience

The Cadets at Edinboro receive their first taste of leadership right on campus. Daily Physical Training, Weekly Leadership Labs, and our once a semester Field Training Exercises are planned, resourced, executed and evaluated by cadets. The experiences of Peer-Leadership learned here build a strong foundation for our cadets in their future both in the military and in the career of their choice.
