This fun evening has stringent rules that if broken can result in being to “the grog”, a concoction made by the senior class with unique ingredients representing the branches of the Army. The evening culminates in a skit roasting the senior class and cadre.

Over the course of the last year and a half, I can honestly say I’ve made significant improvements on what it means to be a leader- which prepares me for my current and future leadership in ROTC, as well as my leadership once I commission. TCU Army ROTC puts a huge emphasis on physical fitness, tactical proficiency, and versatile leadership. You will make amazing friends for life and learn skills that will help you exceed for the rest of your Army career with the help of cadre and your fellow cadets

CDT Ben Moran, Commissioning Class of 2020.

My experience in Army ROTC so far has been extremely rewarding. The cadre professionally utilize their real-life experiences to successfully prepare us to commission as second lieutenants in the United States Army. I have been trained to hold myself to a much higher standard than the average college student and have learned exceptional ways to manage my time and myself overall. As an out of state student, joining the Horned Frog Battalion has provided me with a family here at school that not only supports and encourages me in all aspects of my life, but also challenges me to improve everyday as I pursue a career in the Army

CDT Lauren Sutton, Commissioning Class of 2019.

As a college Freshman coming into TCU I was excited to be a part of Army ROTC but was very insecure and unsure of what I stood for. This program helped me find confidence in myself, find the voice that I didn’t know I had, and has pushed me past my physical boundaries. I have been continually forced out of my comfort zone, and I am a better person and leader because of it. I would not trade any of the memories or challenges that ROTC has given me for anything, and I am convinced that the people in this program are some of the best friends I will make in my life. They have become like family to me.

CDT Trevor Bagg, Commissioning Class of 2019.

ROTC life has given me an opportunity to focus my passion and values into an outlet. I joined ROTC inspired by the idea of creating a better world more effectively because of my experience as an Army officer. By emphasizing leadership and motivation, ROTC simultaneously equipped me with the skills I needed to succeed in college and the program. Being directly evaluated on my capabilities led me down a path of self-discovery, driving me to work toward being a better leader and man every day. This has improved my ability to perform in my academics and extracurricular activities, because I am aware of my weaknesses and provided with the tools I need to boost them.
