Iowa ROTC Cadets

Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)

The Army ROTC program is a college elective that combines academia with hands-on training. Participation requires just a few hours per week, so it will not interfere with your other classes or activities. Upon completion of the program, you will become a lieutenant in the Iowa National Guard!

ROTC focuses on teamwork and leadership. You will take on responsibility in a challenging environment. You will be given the opportunity to mentor junior cadets, and form lasting friendships.

In addition to on-campus training, you could be offered instruction in mountaineering, rappelling and orienteering.
