“ I wanted to be part of something special. I started Army ROTC and joined the Ranger Company my first quarter. I was selected for the Ranger Challenge Team and accelerated my military skills & knowledge while having fun and making new friends. AROTC has given my deep sense of accomplishment and pride. ”

Cadet Andrew Thompson, Springfield, Ohio


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 Fall and Spring, many Cadets are commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the United States Army during ceremonies held in conjunction with graduation.  Families, friends, university representatives and distinguished guests participate in the commissioning ceremony and the traditional "Silver Dollar" salute.
