ROTC

As part of your advanced training, you’ll participate in the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), during a weekly class time taught by a military officer. As a cadet, you’ll have two years (four if you plan to pursue a commission) of true military training, leadership development, and experience working with officers.
