Program Overview

Army ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. It prepares you with the tools, training and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition, too.​

Our Cadets meet three times a week to conduct PT (physical training) and at least once a week for a Leadership Lab. The PT sessions generally last an hour and work towards conditioning our Cadets physically to be leaders in the United States Army.

Leadership Labs are designed to develop Cadets into confident and competent leaders by providing education on necessary skills and placing the Cadets in leadership positions over their peers. Every semester there is a Field Training Exercise (FTX) where Cadets incorporate their knowledge and leadership skills into a cumulative event. Between the Junior and Senior years, Cadets travel to Ft. Knox Kentucky for 30 days where they will learn valuable skills with all Cadets across the country.

Summer training opportunities such as Airborne School, Air Assault School, and Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency (CULP) are available to Cadets as well.​
