Cadet Life

Through your years in Army ROTC, you will be trained and mentored by cadre and other Cadets alike. Army ROTC consists of both physical fitness and military training. Wright State Army ROTC Cadets have access to diverse classroom instructions, hands-on equipment training, and full-scale mission execution utilizing Wright State's 40 acres of wooded terrain. 

Cadets have opportunities to go above and beyond in Wright State Army ROTC. Cadets can be active on the Ranger Challenge team and compete yearly at Fort Knox, Kentucky, or represent the program and university at various events as part of the Raider Color Guard. The Raider Battalion also has special summer training opportunities available. Cadets can earn their wings at Airborne or Air Assault school as well as attend other specialty schools with the Cadet Practical Field Training (CPFT). Cadets can go abroad with the Cultural Understanding and Language Proficiency Program (CULP). Cadets have the option to attend paid internships through the Army with the Cadet Leader Training-Internships (CLTI) or they can be imbedded with an Active Duty unit, shadowing their Platoon Leader with Cadet Troop Leader Training (CTLT).

The Raider Battalion has the tradition of participating in various physical events such as the Annual Air Force Marathon hosted at Wright Patterson AFB, the Wright State Air Force ROTC vs. Army ROTC Fitness Challenge, and the German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge Testing (GAFPB).  

Wright State Army ROTC supports Wright State University events such as the Military Appreciation Basketball Game and the Military Appreciation Baseball Game, and Wright State Move-In day. The Raider Cadets volunteer time to the community as well as fundraise and recruit on and off-campus.
