ROTC helps you develop the leadership and managerial skills you need for success in the Army or any other profession you choose.
As a freshman and sophomore in the ROTC program, you will learn the value of teamwork and the strength of concentrated group effort on mission accomplishment. You will learn the value of honesty, integrity and ethics, and strengthen your personal character by participation in orienteering, rappelling, paintball, and other hands-on activities.
You will be given many leadership challenges your junior and senior years. You will teach classes, lead physical fitness sessions, undertake special projects and run training exercises. As a senior, you form the staff that runs the cadet program. At the conclusion of each leadership opportunity you are mentored and critiqued by professional military officers and sergeants.
Throughout the program you will participate in a variety of social events and extracurricular activities, such as the annual military ball and field training exercises at Fort McCoy. Opportunities also exist for summer internships at Army posts around the world, as well as participation in special military training, such as airborne school.
