The ROTC is administered by the school and the US Army. The ROTC unit trains its members in good citizenship and gives them the benefit of the training in the event they join or are called to the armed services. The training and drill teaches coordination of the mind and body and is a strong teacher of discipline while emphasizing courtesy to others. The members receive training in the basic aspects of numerous military weapons. Military science is offered to those students who are capable and willing to take more advanced training.
