About the Pirate Battalion

Army ROTC is a leadership program that allows cadets to both attend college as a regular student, and train to commission as an Officer in the US Army upon graduation. A number of opportunities are available to prospective cadets joining the program, and there are a number of different schools a cadet can be a full-time student at and still receive a full scholarship from the Army. Whether you're in high school, college or already in the Army, there is a way you can become an Officer in today's Army. Read more >>
