The Naval ROTC Learning Community is devoted to building a solid foundation for future Navy and Marine Corps Officers. This community is a collaborative effort between students interested in pursuing a career in the US Naval Service and the Active-Duty NROTC Purdue staff. This community offers not only an introduction to the requirements and expectations of Navy and Marine Corps Officers, but also an opportunity to develop teamwork and leadership skills with fellow midshipmen through a variety of professional, cultural, and athletic events.

The Naval ROTC Learning Community offers the opportunity to build and enhance relationships with fellow Naval Science students and faculty in informal, fun, and friendly out-of-class activities.
