“ The physical training conducted in ROTC will get you in the best shape of your life. ”

Raymond Phillips, Anchorage, Alaska


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.


The National Society of Pershing Rifles gives Army ROTC Cadets the opportunity to develop to the highest degree possible. Cadets can take part in precision trick rifle drill teams that provide them with the outstanding traits of leadership, military bearing and discipline.

Commissioning Ceremony

 Each spring several cadets are commissioned into the United StatesArmy during ceremonies held on each campus. Families, friends, UniversityPresidents and other distinguished guests take part in the commissioning aswell as the ceremony.

Field Training Exercise

Once each semester, cadets head to an off campus location for a two dayfield training exercise.  Training can include rappelling, weaponstraining, land navigation and basic field craft.
