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 Part of the Golden Bear Battalion

means you’ll be in the company of diverse individuals with broad interests.  Individuals who were presidents of their student governments, captains of their varsity sports teams, club presidents, or members of the National Honor Society.

Cadets around the Berkeley Campus

are regular students just like everyone else on campus. They take a regular schedule of classes and have an academic major. Once a week they meet as a group for a leadership laboratory, along with their regular ROTC academic class meetings. During lab they wear military uniforms and conduct military and leadership training. Students can take ROTC as an elective course which culminates in a commission as a Second Lieutenant - an Army officer.
