The Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is the best opportunity for you to get invaluable experience while still in school. When enrolled in ROTC, you learn and develop leadership skills and prepare for a career in the U.S. military. You will learn firsthand what it takes to lead others, motivate groups and how to conduct missions.
Through ROTC, you can start a military career in health care, aviation, finance, engineering, chemistry, law enforcement and transportation, just to name a few. Additionally, each of the armed forces has its own ROTC programs. That means you can choose the service and career path that appeals to you.
