Marist Army ROTC in NY: At a Glance
What is ROTC?
The Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is the largest program in the military responsible for commissioning new officers. With almost 275 programs across the United States, ROTC produces 60% of the second lieutenants in the Army.
ROTC is an incredible way for college students to learn discipline, time management, leadership skills, physical fitness, and much more! The program develops college students into the country's next leaders through a range of activities and courses that teach students how to balance different aspects of their lives.
The Marist College ROTC program has been commissioning officers into the Army since 2006. After graduation, Cadets can go on to serve entire careers in the military, or translate their military leadership abilities into civilian occupations after their service obligation.
