“ Joining ROTC has been one of the best decisions that I have ever made. Not only does it help me out financially, but every day I am being challenged to grow as a person and a leader. ”

See how interesting college can be when you're a part of Army ROTC. You'll be a college student first and foremost, just like the rest of the student body, but there's a key difference: you'll have even more opportunities to succeed.

These opportunities include Field Training Exercises (FTXs) in the spring and fall where Cadets build their teamwork and leadership skills. Cadets also participate in Physical Training (PT) on a regular basis to keep up their strength and endurance.

In addition, each battalion has its own unique calendar of events and activities.

Being a part of the Nanook Battalion

Means you'll be in the company of a diverse group of individuals with broad interests. You’ll be training with individuals who were presidents of their student governments, captains of their varsity sports teams, club presidents, or members of the National Honor Society.

University of Alaska Fairbanks offers a very unique environment for cadets to both train and live in

Cadets will experience weather/temperature changes of over 150 degrees. Temperatures reach 90 degrees in the summer and Negative 60 degrees in the winter. Only campus to really experience such extremes.

Small school atmosphere, big school opportunities

UAF is not a crowded campus, and class sizes range anywhere from 4-30. You get to learn in a small school environment but leave with big school opportunities.
