ROTC teaches cadets to be comfortable in all situations in which they may find themselves in the Army.

“ Being an Army ROTC cadet means making a commitment to serve my country. …It gives me a purpose to strive for and work at. I would compare ROTC to participating in a team sport; people working together for a common goal and enjoying the camaraderie of shared efforts and interests. ”

CDT Brandon Trama, Harvard University ‘06, Colchester, CT

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 around the MIT campus

are regular students just like everyone else on campus. They take a regular schedule of classes and have an academic major. Once a week they meet together as a group for leadership laboratory, along with their regular ROTC academic class meetings. During lab they wear military uniforms and conduct military and leadership training. Students can take ROTC as an elective course, an academic minor, or pursue the entire program, which culminates in a commission as a Second Lieutenant - an Army officer.
