History

Army ROTC offers the broadest path for young men and women seeking to serve the nation as Army officers to achieve their goal. For nearly a century, Army ROTC has provided college students with the opportunity to combine world-class leadership and management training with their other academic studies. The state-of-the-art curriculum, which consists of a series of classroom and hands-on leadership training experiences, gives students the necessary foundation to serve successfully in positions of responsibility in either America’s Army or the corporate world.

For more than 200 years, the U.S. Army has trained some of the world’s most renowned leaders. From captains of industry to presidents of the United States, many began their paths as Army officers. Today, that same world-class training is creating the next generation of leaders. When you join this timeless tradition, you too will gain the skills and strength to become one of them.
