Appalachian State University's Army ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. It prepares you with the tools, training, and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition, too. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be an officer in the Army.
Being an officer in the U.S. Army means you're a leader, a counselor, a strategist, and a motivator. It's similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an officer, you will lead other soldiers in all situations and adjust to environments that are always changing. You'll be driven to achieve success with your team on every mission.
Army ROTC is a one-of-a-kind experience. The challenges you face and the obstacles you'll overcome will prepare you for future success.
Army ROTC is one of the nation's top leadership programs, with many benefits to joining.
Through Army ROTC you can:
- Get help with your college tuition with an Army ROTC scholarship
- Gain experience you can't find anywhere else
- Gain the respect of your peers and future employers
- Train to become a leader and manager
