Future Cadets

Army ROTC Alumni Society exists to support the Furman University Army ROTC Paladin Cadets and Cadre and to promote relations among alumni, Cadets, and the university. The Army Reserve Officer Training Corps has a rich history since 1950 on the Furman University campus. Hundreds of military and community leaders have launched their careers through this program, to include 11 General Officers through a variety of events, the Alumni Society seeks to share the rich tradition with cadets, learn what’s new in the Paladin program, and honor cadets and alumni. Through social events (i.e. Furman football homecoming and various awards programs) the society hopes to promote the spirit and keep alive the legacy that is ROTC at Furman.

Being an officer in the U.S. Army means you’re a leader, a counselor, a strategist and a motivator. It’s similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an officer, you will lead other soldiers in all situations and adjust in environments that are always changing. You are driven to achieve success with your team on every mission.
