“ ROTC is a challenging and rewarding experience where you learn from your peers and experience things the average college student doesn’t. ”

Jason Huml – Santa Clara University,Lisle, IL

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.

Stand Out From the Rest

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.  The only addition to your normal academic load is a weekly class, and biweekly labs where instruction is on military courtesy, basic tactics, fighting skills, and team building.

Being a part of the Bronco Battalion

Means you’ll be in the company of a diverse group of individuals with broad interests.  Individuals who were presidents of the student governments, captains of their varsity sports teams, club presidents, or members of the National Honor Society.  Your courses will include Leadership Development, Military Skills, and Adventure Training.

Cadets around the SCU campus

Are regular students just like everyone else on campus?  They take a regular schedule of classes and have an academic major.  During lab they wear military uniforms and conduct military and leadership training, but are not required to wear it to other courses.  Students can take ROTC as an elective course, or pursue the entire program which culminates in a commission as a Second Lieutenant.
