What Makes This Community Different

The ROTC Community is designed for any students interested in the Army, Navy/Marine, or Air Force ROTC. This community provides on-site academic advising, a meeting room in the residence hall, study groups, and tutoring/mentoring by upper class ROTC cadets/midshipmen. The LLC is open to all ROTC members, regardless of scholarship status. This is a college residence hall, not barrack-style housing.

These are smaller learning communities within residence halls focused on an area of study or student interest. Students in these communities will meet others who share their interests, and have unique opportunities to pursue those interests outside of the classroom.
