“ WMU ROTC is a team orientated, physically challenging, mentally tough and overall rewarding experience that brings out the full potential in each cadet. We focus on leadership and teamwork, which is a cornerstone in today’s military and business world. ”

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.
