“ ROTC is a different lifestyle than most college students. It takes commitment, discipline and self-motivation, but the payoff could not be greater. ”

Roshandra R., Spartanburg, SC

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.

Learn more about Events and Activities

Wofford Army ROTC supports community events.

The ROTC lifestyle means that you are not afraid to serve and support the community and nation.  Cadets serve their community in various capacities and in various service type organizations.  Whether it is through service in a color guard at one of the school’s athletic events, speeches to local elementary school children or cleaning the graves of local veterans, our cadets are always ready to show community support.

What it means to be a Southern Guard

Being a Southern Guard means you are already successful; you were at the top of your high school class.  You bring talents, skills and knowledge that will make the Battalion better.  You become a Warrior Leader while receiving a world-class 21st Century education. 

Being a member of the Southern Guard Team

Teamwork is paramount in the Army.  We always work as a team in everything we do.  Southern Guards always work together to accomplish the mission, no matter the challenge, no matter the foe the Southern Guards rise to the occasion.

Becoming Army Strong

Cadets don’t attend basic training.  We teach Army skills right on campus.  Among these are time management, a healthy and fitness focused lifestyle and sound judgment.  Army Strong is only one-third muscle.
