A Day in the Life of a ROTC Cadet

Cadets in rafts

Army ROTC Cadets learn valuable life experience
during their time at Radford University in preparation
for a military or professional career.

Welcome to the Department of Military Science, Army ROTC, New River Battalion

Want a job after graduating with your bachelor degree?  Becoming an Army Officer will help ensure you are employed after graduation.

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. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be an Officer in the United States Army, Army National Guard, or Army Reserves.

As an Officer, you lead by example and you will lead other Soldiers in all situations and adjust in environments that are always changing. They are driven to achieve success with their unit on every mission.
