“ Army ROTC provides me an enormous advantage as a student training to be an Army nurse. The leadership and hands-on training is unmatched and the experience that I will gain will be over and above that of my colleagues in the civilian sector. ”

Oliveira, A. (Uconn Nursing Student), Danbury, Connecticut

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 Nathan Hale Battalion

When I visited UConn during my senior year in high school and met with various ROTC cadets, their confident demeanor, clean appearance and intelligent, crisp bearing was especially noticeable. That’s my personality, Ilike regimentation and predictability. This program serves as a constant reminder of the high standards to which we, as future officers, must hold ourselves.

Army ROTC puts you in a select group of men and women. Some were past presidents of student activity clubs, were active intramural sports players, one cadet was on the golf team all four years in high school.

Being a member of the Nathan Hale Battalion

Everyone works out together 3 days a week, so we meet a certain standard for physical fitness, that’s part of the Army Value commitment. We don’t let anyonefall out of a run, if they fall behind, someone always runs with them and encourages them to catch up to the formation. If they get too far behind the entire formation circles around and incorporates them back into the group.That’s team work and team building!
