How often do we do
Physical training exercises?
PT takes place four days a week, on Monday thru Thursday mornings from 6:00 – 7:00 AM. These workouts are composed of various exercises including the basics of sit-ups, push-ups, and running to improve and maintain the physical fitness level of our cadets. It is also strongly encouraged that cadets also exercise on their own, as fitness will be assessed at least twice a quarter.
What is SMP?
SMP stands for simultaneous membership program. If you are a junior, contracted as an MS-III and a member of an Army National Guard or Army Reserve unit, you may participate in this program. This program allows you to gain valuable experience in your unit as a “Third Lieutenant” working with junior officers. You receive extra pay of that of an “E-5”. For more information contact an ROTC recruiter.
What will I learn in ROTC?
ROTC will teach you management skills and leadership skills that will be essential to be an officer, and very beneficial for any civilian career.
What makes ROTC different
from regular college classes?
ROTC isn’t simply just classroom learning, there is also live or “hands on” learning. Cadets can expect to find themselves doing adventure training, mountain climbing or even rafting.
Is there a military
For the first two years (or one year if you a contracted cadet with a scholarship) there is no obligation.
How are ROTC courses
It’s broken down into two phases basic and advanced: the basic course covers army history and organization and structure. In basic courses you will also learn techniques and principles of leadership and management. The advanced course will cover tactical operations, military instruction and advanced techniques of leadership and management.
