Over this past week the battalion participated in the Chicago Consortium AMOI Challenge at Northwestern University. We were joined by our affiliate unit, and the Loyola Army ROTC unit. The event consisted of a 7.75 mile endurance race, and multiple individual events. The endurance team was made up entirely of new 4/cs, and they were impressive, beating the Army squad. All in all it was a great event, and a great opportunity to work with the Northern Unit.
