ROTC: Training future leaders

ROTCROTC is an elective course. In it, you'll learn about the tools and training needed to succeed in any competitive environment, and ROTC can help pay your tuition.


Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps), one of the best leadership courses in the country, can be a part of your college curriculum. Being a student at The University of Akron and learning to become a leader will make your college experience even richer — and prepare you for the future.
