Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

“ Throughout my four years in the ROTC program at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University I have had more opportunities to grow as a person and a leader than can be imagined. From the moment I started school I felt like I was truly accepted into a family of sorts, the cadets in the Eagle Battalion serve as a great support system. As a cadet I have had the opportunity to experience different kinds of training from Airborne school to Combat Survival with the Air Force to jumping out of airplanes with the 82nd Airborne to prepare me for my future role as a 2nd LT. I have been able to watch the Eagle Battalion grow and expand during my time and I can't wait to look back as an Alumnus to see what happens next. ”

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.
