Welcome to the Jackson State University, Reserve Officer's Training Corps Alumni Program (JRAP) site.  This site exists to support the Tiger Battalion which consists of Cadets from Jackson State University, Belhaven University, Milsaps College, Hinds Community College, Tougaloo College, Mississippi College, Mississippi Valley State University, Delta State University and University of Mississippi Medical Center, School of Nursing.  We promote relations among alumni, cadets, and each of the Universities.

The Tiger Battalion Alumni have become leaders in our nation's military forces, our local communities, businesses, and educational institutions.

The goals of the Program are clear:

  • Provide a way to share the tradition with cadets and honor them along with the Alumni at the Tiger Battalion.
  • Assist the Cadets while still in school and after graduation.
  • Support the faculty of the Department of Military Science.

We are currently seeking Tiger Battalion Alums that would like to serve as a mentor to some of our Cadets.  You will be matched with a Senior Cadet that has recently been accessed into your branch of the Army.  Contact with the Cadets will be via email or telephone it is up to you and the Cadet.

"If you are interested in serving as a mentor please contact CPT Ike Singletary, Associate Professor of Military Science, via email at ike.singletary.mil@mail.mil."

Send in your photos and updates!  If you were associated with the Tiger Battalion as either cadre or a cadet, please let us know how you are doing.

You can become an active member by filling out an online application.
