Furman University’s Army ROTC program began on campus in the 1950s and it has been growing ever since. It is comprised of three schools: Furman University, North Greenville University, and Bob Jones University. North Greenville University and Furman University have been partner schools within the Army ROTC program for a majority of its history, however, in 2018, Bob Jones University joined the Paladin Battalion. Cadets from Furman’s partner schools come to our campus for Military Science classes and all major ROTC-related events. All schools are important to the success of the program, which fosters a unique group of cadets.

The U.S. Army Cadet Command partners with universities to recruit, educate, develop, and inspire Senior ROTC Cadets in order to commission Officers of character for the Total Army; and partners with high schools to conduct JROTC in order to develop citizens of character for a lifetime of commitment and service to the nation.
