Join Army ROTC

The Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) is the best opportunity for students to get invaluable experience while earning a college degree. When enrolled in ROTC, cadets learn and develop leadership skills and prepare for a career as an officer in the U.S. military. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will have the opportunity to serve as a leader in the United States Army. As an officer, you will lead others in all situations and adjust in environments that are always changing. Through ROTC, you can start a military career in health care, aviation, finance, engineering, chemistry, law enforcement and transportation, just to name a few.
