The mission of the Military Science Department is to commission the future officer leadership of the United States Army and motivate young people to be better Americans. Our mission is accomplished through recruiting,selecting,motivating,training and retaining students who possess leadership potential. ROTC gives students a valuable opportunity to build for the future by helping them earn both a college degree and earn a commission at the same time.

ROTC graduates are leaders, thinkers and decision-makers. They know how to adapt to situations and take charge. They will find that their background and experience in ROTC and the Army can be a valuable asset if they decide to pursue a civilian career. The practical experience they gain by leading people and managing money and equipment can place them far ahead of other graduates competing for jobs that lead to top management positions.
