“ WVU Army ROTC is tirelessly hard at work forging America's leaders of tomorrow. To be a part of it, and know what my future holds, is an indescribable feeling. ”

See how interesting college can be when you're a part of Army ROTC. You'll be a college student first and foremost, just like the rest of the student body, but there's a key difference: you'll have even more opportunities to succeed.

These opportunities include Field Training Exercises (FTXs) in the spring and fall where Cadets build their teamwork and leadership skills. Cadets also participate in Physical Training (PT) on a regular basis to keep up their strength and endurance.

In addition, each battalion has its own unique calendar of events and activities.

"Smartest Course a Mountaineer Can Take"

Army ROTC is one of the best leadership courses in the country and is part of your college curriculum. During classes and field training, you will learn first-hand what it takes to lead others, motivate groups and how to conduct missions as an Officer in the Army. Upon graduation from Army ROTC, you will earn the bar of a Second Lieutenant and become a leader for life.

“Duty”

“Duties come, sorrows come, friendships are suddenly sundered, yet we must carry on, keeping the faith, knowing the righteousness of our cause, and willing to give our all.”  Captain S.P. Hoskins, 19 October 1918

“Answer the call, be a part of the Mountaineer Battalion”

“The object of ROTC is to combine military instruction with physical training in such a way as to beget the habit and desire in the student to be prompt, obedient, and efficient in the discharge of their duties.”   Major J.W. Hartigan, July 1893.
