Physical fitness is a huge part of the Bulldog Battalion. We train leaders to lead by example, we can’t expect our soldiers to be fit, if we ourselves are not setting the standard. Our battalion has traditionally scored in the top 10% of the nation with our APFT scores. We are able to accomplish this through hard work and teamwork. We work hard together, to push each other to reach our goals.

The program has been designed to meet the country's requirement for officer-leaders in the Army (Active Duty, National Guard and Reserves). It is, therefore, multifaceted with distinctive sub-elements to meet individual needs and requirements. For example, ROTC is traditionally a four-year program, but individuals with prior service, members of Reserve or National Guard units, participants of JROTC in high school, and summer Leader's Training Course attendees may receive advanced placement credit and complete the program in two years. Normally all students enroll in one Military Science course, leadership laboratory and physical training per semester. Physical fitness of all cadets is closely monitored. The program consists of two phases: the Basic Course (Lower Division), normally taken during the Freshman and Sophomore years or obtained through advanced placement credit, and the Advanced Course (Upper Division).

Battalion History
