Drake ROTC

Army ROTC: It's How Students Become Leaders

Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) is one of the best leadership courses in the country and offers classes you can take as electives within your normal college curriculum. You can take up to the first two years of the program without having to contract to serve in the Army. The program is for students with two, three or four years of college remaining, and there is even a program for graduate students. Of course there are scholarships and other financial programs for every option, but the best part of the program is the training and experience that you can't find anywhere else on campus. Being a student in ROTC will enhance the quality of your education and will better prepare you for whatever career you pursue.

Our Program - The Bulldog Company

Drake ROTC follows the same curriculum and is instructed by the same cadre as the highly successful Iowa State University program. Our cadets are part of the "host" Cyclone Battalion in Ames, which includes students from Iowa State University, and Buena Vista University. Our students receive high quality education on campus with most of the training taking place at the Drake Campus. Drake cadets participate in combined training with cadets from other schools twice a year at Camp Dodge in Johnston, Iowa.
