University of Maine
This is not Basic Training. Cadets at the University of Maine are also students pursing their undergraduate degree. Army ROTC courses are taken in conjunction with their academic requirements. Academic success is just as important as their ROTC performance. Cadets must receive their degree before being commissioned as a second lieutenant. Army ROTC allows students to live the “college experience” and still prepare for a fulfilling career as an Army officer.

Along with leadership, confidence is important to developing the Army’s next generation of officers.

“ 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. ”
