Yes. Physical fitness is a critical component of a soldier's and officer's readiness. Being in good physical condition improves overall health, helps you deal better with stress, and helps your mental acumen. Officers should set the example in physical fitness.
Physical training (PT) is conducted three times a week for one hour and is a combined session with students from all ROTC classes. The focus is two-fold: to achieve high performance on the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) and to improve overall physical readiness. Activities include a wide variety of cardio workouts, muscle workouts, ruck marches, stretching, and swimming/water skills;team sport activities such as Ultimate Football or handball complement standard workouts. PT sessions emphasize target heart rate and heart rate monitoring.
The Combat Water Survival Test (CWST) is a requirement to commission. Failure to pass will result in you being enrolled in an ROTC-funded swimming improvement class until you can successfully complete the CWST.
No. Your academic and athletic success is our highest priority and you must do well in both areas to succeed in ROTC. While it is true that cadets have some additional extracurricular activities, preparation time, and group work, our cadets have a cumulative GPA above the university average. ROTC cadets are often more mature and better time managers than most students.
