Reserve Officer Training Corps
The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps mission is to train and commission lieutenants for the Army of tomorrow. Army ROTC is a challenging, and exciting program of instruction that focuses on leadership development not only in theory, but in practice. Our students earn practical leadership through actual experience and are campus and community leaders at many different levels. Army ROTC provides students the opportunity to learn about themselves and their potential, and challenges them to achieve ever greater heights of personal and professional leadership.
Challenges await you in the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) program. We are committed to providing the very best qualified officers for service in the United States Navy and Marine Corps. To attain this goal, we focus on academics, leadership, physical readiness and community involvement. We provide students with the skills necessary to succeed, not only as naval officers, but more importantly, as citizens of this great country.
