“ I've always wanted to serve in the military and knowing that I would graduate college as a 2LT in a career field of my choice seemed like an opportunity that I couldn't pass up. By the beginning of my Senior year I will know what I'm doing for the next four years, while my peers will be scrambling to find some internship or odd job after graduation. ”

Cadet Andy Herring, Wilmington, NC

LEADERSHIP

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.

SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

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.
