Returning Alumni Program

1LT Challen Class of ’03 speaks to a JROTC class.

Returning Alumni Program

ORAP / SRAP - Officers can now share their deployment experiences with their alma mater!!!  As of Jan. 15, 2005, officers who are currently located in CONUS and have served in support of Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom may request to participate in SRAP, where eligible personnel can serve up to 14 days on temporary duty at a recruiting station nearest their hometown. Before SRAP, interested officers could participate in the U.S. Army Command Cadet program called Officer Returning Alumni Program, or ORAP. The program, which is completely unfounded, allows an officer to return to his alma mater on permissive TDY status to share his experiences as an officer. Interested officers must be 28 years old or less, look the part of an Army officer, display a positive image, and be articulate and enthusiastic about what they do. Interested ROTC officers must submit their applications (4187) directly to Major Van Hout from Cadet Command, and email CPT Amy Wallace, the ROO,  Several officers have already participated in this program as well as the Hometown Recruiter Assistance Program.  Requests will undergo a screening process, which takes about seven days. Approved officers will be notified via e-mail.


Want to Give Back to ROTC?

We have received information that our graduates would like to give back to ROTC in appreciation for leadership opportunities and experience gained.  However, there is no direct option on the Alumni giving site to do so.  If you would like to give back to the ROTC program,click here, in block that reads Designation of Gift/Pledge, select the option "Other."  In the next block, you will be able to write in ROTC and the money will come to our program.
