Are you are looking for a challenge and having fun while doing it, have another family home away from here, and want many great career opportunities after college? If yes is your answer, Army ROTC is for you.
What is the Army ROTC and what are the benefits?
The Army ROTC is offered at many colleges and Universities across the nation. This program had been established to seek committed intellectual young men and women who want to serve in our nation’s military at junior levels of management or as officers. Students who are seeking 4 year degrees or a Masters degree who complete all the requirements of our program will commission as a Second Lieutenant.
Benefits of ROTC vs. Enlisted:
•You will get your Degree and Army Commission at the very same time. Once you have completed your undergraduate or graduate degree, you will be able to go anywhere and do practically anything that you put your mind to. The possibilities are forever endless while serving as an Army Officer (and even after the military) with all the experiences you will gain.
•Salary of a Commissioned Army Officer is much higher than that of an enlisted soldier (and comparable to those of the civilian sector) with 4 years of service or experience.
•As a Commissioned Army Officer, upon graduation day you start in the junior fields of management with tremendous career growth opportunities.
•Learn and have fun enjoying military formals, rappelling, rifle marksmanship, first aid training, land navigation training, outdoors camping, learning to manage people, and much more.
What happens after Graduation?
Once a student has graduated they will attend the Basic Officer Leader Course (BOLC) as a Second Lieutenant. This course is specifically designed around the career field that they have been given. After graduating from this course, which varies in length, they will then be assigned to a unit anywhere in the world supervising 30- 40 people.
