“ Army ROTC has been the most rewarding activity I have ever been involved in. I've met some of my best friends at the University of Maine and from across the country while participating in training that has challenged me both physically and mentally. Army ROTC gave me the motivation to focus on academics in a way that I had never done before and consequently made me a much better student. My experience with UMaine Army ROTC has exceeded every expectation I had coming into the program and has allowed me to exceed all the expectations I had for myself. ”

In Army ROTC you will learn to become a leader-not just a person who gives orders but a person who leads by example. Being an Officer in the U.S. Army means you're a counselor, a strategist and a motivator. It's similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an Officer, you will lead other Soldiers in all situations and adjust to environments that are always changing. You'll be driven to achieve success with your team on every mission.

The specific skills you receive in Army ROTC will include things like leadership development, military skills and adventure training. This will take place both in the classroom and in the field, but you will have a normal daily schedule like all college students. Army ROTC has two phases: Basic Course and Advanced Course.
