ROTC stands for Reserve Officer Training Corps. It's a college program offered at more than 1,000 colleges and universities across the United States that prepares young adults to become officers in the U.S. Military. In exchange for a paid college education and a guaranteed post-college career, cadets commit to serving in the Military after graduation. When enrolled in ROTC you learn first-hand what it takes to lead others, motivate groups and how to conduct missions as a military officer. If interested, meet with a recruiter during your junior year to learn more about the application process.
