Physical fitness is a key component to the Army ROTC Program at Princeton and The College of New Jersey.

“ As a current MSIII, ROTC has come to serve as a launch pad from which to become a successful leader. From day one of MSIII class, we were reminded that "we are in the business of leading", and in doing so, influence those around us to accomplish a mission/task. However, like all good things in life, realizing this goal depends on how much effort and commitment one is willing to put forth. I have taken this adage seriously and as a result, have matured tremendously as student and a cadet. I am proud to have enrolled in ROTC and I stand ready to honor my duty to country. ”

Cadet William Yang, TCNJ, Peqannock, NJ


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.
