About ROTC

ROTC patch

Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) is one of the best leadership courses in the country and is part of your college curriculum. During classes, leadership labs, physical training and field training exercises, you will learn firsthand what it takes to lead others, motivate groups and conduct missions as an Officer in the Army. You will also gain management and organizational skills that will prove invaluable no matter where life takes you. Upon graduation from Army ROTC, you will earn the bar of a Second Lieutenant and be commissioned into the Active Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard and become a leader for life. And all this is while being part of a team and building lifelong friendships with your fellow cadets and instructors.
