Welcome to the Jackson State University Army ROTC Website – Training Tomorrow’s Leaders Today.
Jackson State University Army ROTC Tiger Battalion service the greater Jackson Area in order to train Cadets/Student to become future Officer in our Armed Forces as well as leaders in the Professional Business World.
The Army ROTC class credits count toward your diploma. And when you graduate, you are commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army. ROTC also awards merit scholarships to hundreds of students each year. Qualify, and you could get a scholarship and monthly allowance worth up to $80,000 at some schools.
ROTC training goes beyond the typical college classroom. You might lead your classmates on a tactical “mission” or take part in outdoor adventure training that improves your ability to solve problems under stress.
As an Army officer you will learn how to motivate co-workers, cope with the unexpected, and organize large, complex tasks. You will also learn skills in demand in the civilian and business world such as teamwork, tact, and effective communication.
You’ll learn from experienced Army officers and, in time, pass on what you’ve learned to newer students. You’ll learn how to take charge… take command… and take the lead.
