“ “ ROTC has benefited me in many ways over the last three and a half years. First, and most importantly ROTC has completely paid for my education. Without having to worry about paying for school I have been able to excel in the ROTC program, school, and give back to the community. The training that I have completed as a cadet in the Falcon Battalion has made me extremely competitive in everything that I do and will do. During my time in the battalion I had the opportunity to attend and complete Airborne school and Air Assault school. By completing this training I have gained advanced skills that will open up many advanced opportunities for me throughout my Army career. Even if a student has no desire to become an Army leader the ROTC program can help them learn more about themselves and their abilities. ”

In Army ROTC you will learn to become a leader-not just a person who gives orders but a person who leads by example. Being an Officer in the U.S. Army means you're a counselor, a strategist and a motivator. It's similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an Officer, you will lead other Soldiers in all situations and adjust to environments that are always changing. You'll be driven to achieve success with your team on every mission.

The specific skills you receive in Army ROTC will include things like leadership development, military skills and adventure training. This will take place both in the classroom and in the field, but you will have a normal daily schedule like all college students. Army ROTC has two phases: Basic Course and Advanced Course.
