ROTC Cadets

Like any elective it fits into your class schedule

ROTC is structured as most other college electives and gives you the opportunity to earn credits towards your degree. Enrollment, however, is not limited to students aspiring to be a military officer. Anyone interested in fine-tuning his or her leadership ability is able to participate in the program during his or her freshman and sophomore years without military commitment.

ROTC is one of the most flexible and accommodating college courses you can take. Although there is a strict training calendar, it is understood that you are a college student with multiple obligations. Academics come first! Here’s what to expect:

Physical Training: Intense group sessions to improve your health and fitness
Class instruction: Learn leadership and military theory
Leadership labs: Lead your peers in missions and practice what you have learned
Field training: Action packed weekend filled with advanced skill set exercises
