“ One of the really nice things about being in ROTC at PLU is the ability to be a soldier and a student simultaneously. It's awesome being able to have a normal, college life while also being a part of something much greater. ”

Eric Lee, MSIII Cadet,Colorado Springs, CO

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.
