Did You Know?

Eagle Battalion, the University’s ROTC program, is a four-time recipient of the prestigious MacArthur Award — having won it this past year for the second year in row. The award is presented to the top ROTC program from among eight brigades in the U.S. The battalion has met or exceeded the required number of Army Commissioned Officers for the last decade — one of only a handful in the country to do so. It is also home to the largest ROTC Nursing program in the U.S. with a national reputation for excellence.
