The Classroom & Beyond

  • Lab

    ROTC Lab at a Glance

    Our students attend military science classes and leadership training labs focusing on a multitude of army training to include leadership, time management, problem solving, ethics and military skill training. At the completion of the program, you are commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the U.S. Army, Army National Guard or Army Reserve. We are looking for quality students, athletes and leaders capable of leading America’s future Army.

  • Travel

    Overseas Travel Opportunities

    For Army ROTC cadets, the world is their classroom. Every year our cadets travel the globe, spending up to three weeks immersed in foreign cultures, learning more about how others around the world view the U.S. and, in the process, learning more about themselves.

  • Life Outside of ROTC

    Life Outside of ROTC

    Meeting lifelong friends while participating in ROTC.  We are more like a family then an organization. You can participate in events outside of ROTC like any other college student. Attending sporting events and participating in community service are just a few things our cadets participate in.
