Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) can enhance your education by providing unique leadership training and management experience.
It helps students develop the qualities necessary for success in either a military or civilian career. Students are given valuable opportunities to build for the future by earning a college degree and an Army Officer's commission at the same time.
Army ROTC training establishes an essential difference between ROTC and other college graduates. Army ROTC cadets are taught to be leaders and are provided hands on experience in managing physical, financial, and human resources. They often possess a higher level of self-confidence than those who have not had the training and superior decision making abilities. Employers value these leadership qualities in the people they hire. That's why ROTC students frequently begin their civilian careers at a higher level of responsibility than other college graduates, and often go on to even higher levels of success.
