Congratulations on starting your scholarship process!

The Spider Battalion ROTC Cadre is committed to each and every Cadet in our unit. We will expertly train and mentor our future leaders so they have the competence, leadership and confidence necessary to lead from the front. Our Cadre, in conjunction with the Cadet leadership, accomplishes this through a deliberate and balanced training plan that allows plenty of time for academic, athletic and social activities. This program commissions some of the finest young leaders in our Army.

I applaud you for considering selfless service to the nation and I wish you the best during your scholarship process.

ROTC Class

  • ROTC is the best leadership course you will take in college.
  • Our ROTC classroom instruction is built around learning the fundamentals of officership. We use our recent deployment experiences to make the instruction relevant. We teach using a combination of lectures, discussions, guest speakers and practical exercises.
  • ROTC Class is 1x per week until Junior Year; 2x per week Junior and Senior Years
  • No Weekly Labs. The Spider Battalion executes one large Leadership and Tactics Lab each semester.
slide11

ROTC Training

  • Cadets run our program and conduct tactical planning and execution throughout the year. There are 4 military posts within 1 hour of our program – we don’t waste our valuable training time driving long distances.
  • Individual PT of Excellence Program. PT is 3x per week.
  • The battalion executes one 48 hour training exercise each semester. We occupy patrol bases, conduct land navigation and squad tactics lanes and execute obstacle courses. We stress leadership, responsibility and accountability from the start.
  • We conduct optional rappelling, weapons qualification and training events every semester. The Spider Battalion has an arsenal of paintball guns which we use to run Battle Drills that improve target acquisition, target engagement and maneuver.
