The Army Senior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) is one of the premier leadership courses in the country offered as a college curriculum elective. As a student at Northeastern State University (NSU), enrolling in ROTC will enhance your collegiate learning experience and prepare you for future success as a military leader or in the civilian sector. ROTC graduates begin their military career as Second Lieutenants on either Active Duty, in the Reserves, or in the National Guard.
ROTC is not just about academics. Cadets also thrive as athletes and leaders. A successful leader in the U.S. Army, leads his/her Soldiers from the front and sets a positive example for them to follow. In addition to preparing you to become a successful Army Officer, the leadership and organization skills taught in ROTC are highly sought-after attributes in the corporate world. Prominent examples of successful leaders include retired Secretary of State Colin Powell, Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton, and former head football coach at the University of Notre Dame Lou Holtz, all of whom received training and life skills through ROTC. Also, having participated in such a highly respected program looks great on a résumé.
So whether you chose to serve in the active Army, National Guard, or Army Reserves, or to better prepare yourself for civilian leadership opportunities, the ROTC program will help you develop the necessary skills needed for success in any career path.
