Cadet Life


When you become a part of Army ROTC, you’re not just working toward a diploma, but an even brighter future as a leader alongside other motivated Cadets. But make no mistake, you’re a student first. You’ll have a college schedule like your fellow students, but you’ll also receive classroom and field courses that will challenge and excite you. Beyond that, you can take part in events and activities with fellow Cadets that will make your college experience even better.

“One of the smartest decisions I ever made, or could have made, with my college career. Army ROTC gives me an advantage over other college students in my career field with the leadership background that ROTC provides. Consequently ROTC has a physically and mentally challenging schedule that forced me to mature and make smart time-management decisions.” Cadet Zachary Jennings
