“ “I joined ROTC because I wanted to learn how to be an effective leader in a service oriented profession. I also knew that without an education, my options would be limited for finding a career that I would be satisfied with. The Army Reserve Officer Training Corps as Seattle University provides me with the training I need to be an effective leader in the Army and to be a first class academic. In my opinion, that is the best of both worlds.” ”

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.
