The Cadet Experience
The training you receive while enrolled in the University of Georgia Army ROTC program
is designed to train and develop students in to scholars, athletes, and leaders. Military Science classes are 3-4 hour credit classes that will prepare you with the tools, training and experiences
that will help you succeed in any competitive environment.
The classes consist of two lectures and one leadership lab per week. The classroom lectures cover management, ethics, tactics, law, military history, and Army society while the leadership labs focus on tactical training to include basic rifle marksmanship, rappelling, land navigation, and squad tactical exercises. During classes and field training, you will learn first-hand how to lead others, how to motivate groups, and how to conduct missions as an officer in the Army.
Cadets also conduct physical training (PT) 3 days a week as a group in the mornings.
PT sessions are designed to challenge Cadets to push themselves both physically and
mentally, while being motivated by their fellow Cadets. PT sessions can include runs
around UGAs beautiful campus, weight lifting in UGA's Ramsey student center, combat
PT, Combat Water Survival Training, ruck marches, and team sports. PT is a great way
for Cadets to stay motivated about physical fitness by having fun and working out
Army ROTC also has unique clubs, such as Ranger Challenge, Color Guard, and the Scabbard and Blade Society which further contribute to the ROTC training and leadership experience.
