Learning a new language is a lot like learning math in a way because it keeps your brain developing. Russian is a really difficult language to learn, but the professors here make it easier. They’re really good at what they do.

Become part of a leading team

Cadets in UW-Milwaukee’s Army ROTC program encompass a wide array of majors and skills. In very few places in the world, and even fewer organizations in college, are individuals able to develop and test their ability to lead. With physical training, field exercises and weekend-long events, you will develop physically and mentally and leave college as an officer in the United States Army.

The title of Army officer is not given, but earned, and is highly sought after by businesses and organizations around the world.

What does ROTC entail?

  • 3 days of physical training per week (3 hours)
  • 1 day of leadership lab per week (2 hours)
  • Weekly Military Science class (1-3 hours, depending on academic year)
  • 1-2 weekends each semester of training at Fort McCoy, Wisconsin
  • 29 days at Advanced Camp in Fort Knox, Kentucky, the summer between your junior and senior year

Army ROTC extracurricular activities

Cadets have many opportunities to socialize and connect outside of the classroom. Some activities include:

  • Ranger Challenge (Varsity Sport)
  • Buddy Rangers
  • German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge
  • Cadet Rangers
  • Color Guard
  • Army-Ten-Miler
  • Northern Warfare Challenge
  • Army Dining In
  • Military Ball
  • Honor Guard (for WWII Veterans)
