Army ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) is one of the smartest college courses you can take. It offers opportunities and challenges that can place you on the fast track to success in life. ROTC trains college students for future service as an Officer in the U.S. Army. You will develop the confidence, self-esteem, motivation and leadership skills you will need regardless of your career plans. The qualities that ROTC training instills will be vital to a productive and rewarding future.
ROTC is an elective course that provides a combination of academics and important hands-on training. You will experience physical and mental challenges geared to help you succeed in college and beyond. You will learn teamwork and have assigned responsibilities like teaching younger cadets the same skills you have acquired. In addition to our on-campus training, we offer instruction in adventure training like rappelling and land navigation.
For its many benefits, Army ROTC requires only a few hours a week. ROTC does not interfere with your required college curriculum or social life. In fact, you will find ROTC a great place to form lasting friendships.

Those interested in joining ROTC should be:
