What experiences are offered outside of the classroom?
In Western’s ROTC program, you will receive outstanding leadership training. The program offers many training events in addition to classroom instruction and practical lab exercises. Cadets are encouraged to train for and participate in any and all opportunities, such as ranger competition, rifle marksmanship, rappelling, combat water survival, situational training exercises, Bataan Death March Memorial, and sports day. Cadets also utilize the department’s land navigation course on campus.
In the summer between their junior and senior years, cadets have the opportunity to attend “Warrior Forge,” a five-week leadership course in Fort Lewis, Washington. They may also attend Airborne School, Air Assault School, Mountain Warfare School and Leaders Training Course throughout their college career.
What types of internship opportunities do you have available?
Cadets have completed internships at the U.S. Armed Forces Recruiting Station in St. Joseph and at the Atchison Chamber of Commerce, Atchison, Kan.
There are also internships available in the Military Science Department, which helps cadets receive a greater understanding of the Army and Army administrative work.
