Northeastern University
ROTC provides the opportunity for many Cadet-run events that provide both good training and a lot of fun. Our Cadets get active in what’s going on both on campus and in the classroom; we tend to stand out from the crowd as some of the strongest developing leaders you’ll find here at Northeastern.

The Annual Military Ball is one of many events planned for ROTC Cadets

“ In ROTC there are a lot of fun events that we get to partake in, we go on field training exercises in the woods, an annual military ball, PT during the week, a ranger challenge team and various other events. ”

RANGER CHALLENGE

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.

PERSHING RIFLES

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.

Student Leadership

I have been given the opportunity to serve as an advisor to the Dean of The Bouve College of Health Sciences and currently serve as the Vice President ofthe Northeastern University Student Nurses Association. In addition to my coursework, these activities really help a student get ahead.

Specialty Schools

I’ve had many opportunities with the Army as well, which include going to Airborne School at Fort Benning, Georgia. This past summer I got to fly to Iowato compete in the German Armed Forces Badge for Military Proficiency where Iwas awarded a gold medal based on my performance.

The Drive to Excel

As a fourth year nursing student and Army ROTC Cadet at Northeastern I havea lot of responsibilities.  The Army and NU have both have given me a lot of opportunities here at school. It’s all in how driven and motivated you are. If you take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way you’ll get the best experience out of college.
