“ ROTC is awesome, fun, and exciting. The camaraderie is great and you make lasting, strong friendships. ”

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.

Color Guard

The Color Guard is responsible for the presentation and retirement of the National Colors at various events.  The precision and expertise of the Color Guard earns respect and admiration at all SU events.

Cadet Council

The Cadet Council is the voice of the cadets in the battalion. The council also coordinates and manages community service events, battalion social events, and fund-raising activities.
