“ Niagara ROTC has been a positive aspect of my life because I am better prepared to excel in academics and life. You will find that Niagara ROTC cadets generally do better then their university counterparts. The values that Niagara ROTC has taught me like personal courage and duty drive me to always do my best.” ”

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.
