“ Ranger Challenge is a physically demanding weekend that pushes cadets just as hard as any varsity sport. Field Training Exercises provided a taste of life in the Army and the training that all soldiers go through. ”

James H. Senft, St. Peters, MO


The Ranger Challenge is an opportunity for schools to "compete" with each other completing military tasks. In addition to a written examination where Cadets test their Army knowledge, there are physical fitness drills and field exercises. Battalions leave a Ranger Challenge with stronger bonds and sharper skills.


The National Society of Pershing Rifles gives Army ROTC Cadets the opportunity to develop to the highest degree possible. Cadets can take part in precision trick rifle drill teams that provide them with the outstanding traits of leadership, military bearing and discipline.

Cannon Crew

<p>The S&T Cannon Crew supports the Missouri S&T Miner football team at home football games. Cadets fire the Stonehenge Battalion’s 75mm Pack Howitzer each time the Miners score a touchdown or field goal. This affords the cadets the opportunity to demonstrate our espirit de corp and our support for the university. Cannon Crewmembers complete certification training from our Field Artillery branch cadre prior to being allowed to crew the howitzer.</p>
