Training and Curriculum


Training and Curriculum

The average OSU Army ROTC student who is actively pursuing a commission as an Officer in the United States Army, attends an ROTC class twice a week and the Leadership Lab on Wednesdays (3 credit hours). He or she participates in a one hour physical fitness program conducted three days a week in the mornings or in the afternoon (student choice).

Training and curriculum is a combination of classroom instruction of basic leadership, management, oral & written communication skills, counseling, map reading and tactics with hands-on laboratory participation both indoors and outdoors. We learn by doing. We can be seen building rope bridges, conducting land navigation, rappelling, having paint ball battles, conducting first aid, setting-up a tactical field site, leading each other, and studying basic soldier tactics to name a few.
