Southern University Army ROTC

Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) is one of the best leadership courses in the country and is part of the university curriculum. During classes, leadership labs, physical training and field training exercises, you will learn first-hand what it takes to lead others, motivate groups and conduct missions as an Officer in the Army. Upon graduation from Army ROTC, you will earn the bar of a Second Lieutenant and be commissioned into the Active Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard and become a leader for life.
