Welcome to Bear Company!

Army ROTC is one of the best leadership courses in the country and is part of your college curriculum. During classes, leadership labs, physical training and field training exercises, you will learn firsthand what it takes to lead others, motivate groups and conduct missions as an Officer in the Army. Upon graduation from Army ROTC, you will earn the bar of a Second Lieutenant and be commissioned into the Active Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard and become a leader for life.

What is Army ROTC?

Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) is a program that will enhance your education by providing unique leadership training and management experience. It helps you 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 simultaneously.

Employers for civilian careers value these characteristics and often prefer them when making important hiring decisions. Read More...
