“ After talking to a ROTC recruiter, I realized all the benefits of becoming an officer. The respect, training and opportunities are three of the reasons I joined ROTC. I know I'm better prepared to face future challenges because of my ROTC experiences. ”

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.
