University of Chicago Army ROTC

University of Chicago Army ROTC This is the official page of the University of Chicago Army ROTC program, part of Chicago's Fire Battalion. The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) was established when President Woodrow Wilson signed the National Defense Act of 1916.
(1)

Since its inception, Army ROTC has provided leadership and military training at schools and universities across the country and has commissioned more than a half million Officers. It is the largest commissioning source in the American military. Army ROTC is one of the most demanding and successful leadership programs in the country. For years, Army ROTC has been creating leaders who go on to rewarding careers in the military and civilian worlds. Army ROTC produces approximately 60 percent of the Second Lieutenants who join the active Army, Army Reserve and Army National Guard. More than 40 percent of current Active Duty Army General Officers were commissioned through ROTC. www.Army.mil

UChicago ROTC Cadets engage in a 6-mile ruck march to relax after a long week of PT and hard work. One group went at 0600, and the other at 1800.

Keep up the PT, D Co. Good luck on finals!

We are picking back up with Cadet Spotlight!

CDT Merril is a second year studying Biology and Economics. He loves ROTC as well as cross country/track. UChicago is his favourite institution with the words “Go Maroons” echoing around him. During COVID he is dabbling in entrepreneurship with fellow D Co cadet CDT Ogle, as well as making digital music. He looks forward to getting back to in-person PT, Hooah!

Congratulations to our 6 MSIVs who were selected for active duty service and given their branch assignments today! We are so proud of you and look forward to seeing what you all accomplish.

We would also like to offer a special congratulations to CDTs Miller and Posner for being designated National DMGs (Distinguished Military Graduates). This is a very prestigious award given to the nation’s top 20% of Army ROTC cadets. We are incredibly proud that despite having a small program, two of our six MSIVs received this national award. (CDT Posner also ranked in the top 10% of cadets nationwide)

Congratulations to all our IVs once again, and way to represent UofC!
