Battalion History

The University of Akron Army ROTC program is one of the oldest and most distinguished programs of its kind, dating back to 1918. In the past 80 odd years, over 1,700 students have been commissioned into service through the Army ROTC program at the University of Akron. Today's Corps of Cadets continue in the traditions and footsteps of their predecessors as leaders in our great Army.  See the Battalion History Page for more information.
