“ I am now more disciplined, organized, and responsible. I am a better communicator, leader, and decision-maker. ROTC has helped me to become a better person mentally and physically, giving me an entirely new level of confidence and making me a professional. ”

RANGER CHALLENGE

The Ranger Challenge is an opportunity for schools to "compete" with each other completing military tasks. In addition to a written examination where Cadets test their Army knowledge, there are physical fitness drills and field exercises. Battalions leave a Ranger Challenge with stronger bonds and sharper skills.
