ROTC enhances your education by providing extensive leadership and management opportunities found in few other courses on campus.
WHY ARMY ROTC?
Army ROTC (Reserve Officers’ Training Corps) is an excellent path to college for those seeking to develop leadership qualities like poise, physical stamina, and self discipline. Although these are traits that can build success in any career, the Army invests in eligible candidates because it gains officers with diverse educational backgrounds and experiences.
Simultaneously, ROTC graduates have the opportunity to use their experience in leadership positions, enabling the Army to relate to the diversity of our ever-changing society.
ROTC will prepare you to receive a commission as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army. Upon graduation, the new 2LT could serve as a full-time active duty officer or a part-time leader in the U.S. Army Reserve or National Guard.
ARMY OFFICERS OFTEN EXCEL IN THE CIVILIAN JOB MARKET
Each year, thousands of Army ROTC graduates enter the civilian employment market. Because ROTC cadets train to accept increasing responsibility right from the start, the men and women trained by the ROTC program step into civilian careers at a higher level than many of their non-ROTC classmates.
For Army nurses, there is specialty training after graduation offered in such areas as obstetrics and gynecology, critical care, psychiatric and mental health, operating room and community health nursing. Opportunities for advanced degree programs fully funded by the Army are also available.
