“ ROTC is great for character building and receiving an introduction into the United States Army. ”

John W.,Dayton, OH

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.

Bobcat Battalion

The Ohio University Bobcat Battalionstands in a class of its own when compared to the Bold Warrior Brigade. OU exceeds the standards in physical fitness, garrison operations, and tacticaloperations because of the dedicated cadre and accomplished MS IVs.  Thecurrent MS IIIs, MS IIs, and MS Is are above standard.  Above all, as oneunit, our hunger to be future US Army Officers is vastly superior to otherBattalions.  Lacey L. – Mentor, OH.
