“ ROTC has many opportunities to train outside of the required events. If a cadet wants to involve themselves more fully in the program there is always extra development available. Cadets can also earn slots to official army school such as Airborne or Air Assault School. ”

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.

PERSHING RIFLES

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.

Dining In

The Dining In is much like the Military Ball except it is meant for only military personnel.  This event sticks more closely to military traditions and rules.  There is a formal dinner, a guest speaker and entertainment.

Military Ball

The Military Ball is one of the many traditions held by the military today.  Cadets bring a date, wear their uniforms and follow certain rules of the mess; there is a formal meal, guest speaker and a dance to conclude the evening.
