Army ROTC is an excellent career opportunity for individuals with the desire to learn leadership and organizational skills that will serve them throughout life. With the rising costs of education, ROTC offers excellent scholarship opportunities for young men and women. Our goal at UTEP is to make Army ROTC as visible and accessible as possible, while creating a culture of excellence to offer the best possible environment for cadets/students to train and develop. Our Military Science faculty members are "Career Counselor" assisting cadets/students navigate their way through the challenges of College Life. Our learning focus is on "Officership," and we will continue to produce quality men and women as Second Lieutenants into the best Army in the world.

Mission: The “Fightin’ Miners” Battalion commissions adaptive, resilient officers who embody the Army’s values and supports local JROTC programs in order to develop citizens and Soldiers that are inspired to a lifetime of service to our nation and local communities.

In honor of the majority of trails in El Paso being open, this week for workout Wednesday we’re recommending everyone get outside to hike, run trails, or bike. Lifting & doing body weight workouts is great, but it’s beneficial to relax and enjoy nature too! - CDT Jensvold @armyrotc @5th_brigade_army_rotc #utep #armyrotc #outdoors #trails #workoutwednesday #fitness #picksup

Farewell cadets -

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. A second family to many especially to this lil ole PAO. I’m going to miss the dozens of text messages asking when a particular post is going to go up, I’m going to miss that megawatt smile from Certeza that could light up a room. Most all I’m going to miss...Salinas. All these now 2nd Lieutenants have proven themselves to be the best of the best - the créme de la créme. Congratulations to you all, oh the places you’ll go.

“I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good ole days before you actually left them”

Some may say being a soldier or mother is the most demanding and noblest of jobs, this level of determination and dedication is known by those who have chose to embark on serving their country and embracing motherhood. Today is Mother’s Day and we are proud of the dedication that MS4 cadets Cady Carpenter and Justice Davis have given to their country and to their families.

Today is selfie in Zoom class day. Except we’re breaking all the rules and using Microsoft Teams instead. Today’s zoomers are CSM and Microsoft teams spokesman himself, Jonathan Renteria. Also, back with an ACL that refuses to quit we’re joined by Jenelle Joffre. Last but not least the old man joins us once again, together these cadets show nothing can stop them from learning.

Today is workout day. Although many submissions were sent in, my phone crashes if I try to upload more than one at a time so we’re gonna upload the others later for your enjoyment. Today we are blessed with a workout from none other than Mr. Garret Goodroe, performed by the one and only SFC Padron.
And a very happy B-day to CDT Garcia

Going through my camera roll and found that one time MSG hijacked the whole auditorium at Ft.Bliss so he could thank the German Airmen for allowing us simple cadets to participate. He really knows how to capture an audience.
