Stand Out From The Rest

See how interesting college can be when you’re a part of Army ROTC. You’ll be a college student first and foremost, just like the rest of the student body, but there’s a key difference: you’ll have even more opportunities to succeed.

These opportunities include Field Training Exercises (FTXs) in the spring and fall where Cadets build their teamwork and leadership skills. Cadets also participate in Physical Training (PT) on a regular basis to keep up their strength and endurance.

In addition, each battalion has its own unique calendar of events and activities.

Being a part of the Rebel Battalion

You’ll be in the company of a diverse group of students with broad interests – people who were presidents of their student governments and other clubs, captains of varsity athletic teams, and members of the National Honor Society.

Achieving Academic Excellence

Although ROTC students are training to become Army officers, they are students first. A ten-to one student to faculty ratio ensures that each student has a close relationship with the military science instructors. Students regularly confer with the ROTC faculty to ensure that they’re taking the correct classes and that they are performing well in those classes.

Time for Other Activities

ROTC students are just like other students. The Ole Miss Army ROTC program allows students to spend time on other activities offered by the university. Cadets in the program are involved in almost every activity and organization on campus including Ole Miss athletic teams, greek life, honors societies, langauge clubs, club sports, and even study abroad. The ROTC program only requires about 10 hours of time per week including training, classroom instruction, and PT.
