University of Michigan

“ This semester is my first semester here at Michigan. I'm a transfer student from Western Michigan University, where I participated in their ROTC program last semester for the first time. Enjoying the program there I decided I would like to continue ROTC here at Michigan but have not yet contracted. What brought me into the military was the education money. A senior in high school, I enlisted into the Michigan National Guard and was trained as a Signal Support Communication Specialist. Serving in the National Guard has been very beneficial. I feel that participating in ROTC builds off of skills acquired through military service and offers a bit more. I hope to make the most of my experience through ROTC in the civilian world. ”

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.
