Transcript We ajre in good shape Military science students take their morning run before the rest of the day begins. Military personnel were required to keep up with their physical training as well as their grades in their other classes, -photo by Kena Alvarado The men and women of the ROTC program may not have been hailed awake by drill sergeants, but training still began at 6:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. With this early rising students in the training still received a similar experience to the actual military. Students who were enrolled in the military science program endured a strict physical training regimen that included running, sit-ups and other exercises that promoted physical and mental stability. For some students, this extensive workout was both exhausting and rewarding. They found that the discipline helped them maintain focus with their studying as well. "Waking up early and exercising regularly instills a 2,001; 2,002; 2,003; 2,004... Students do sit-ups for physical training, while others hold their feet down. Physical training was important to the health and fitness of military science, -photo by Kena Alvarado certain discipline that can be applied to study skills and organizing one's priorities," said senior media production major Christian Blevins. Physical training, in addition to strengthening the body, helped students to clear their minds and focus on impending tasks. Students even learned this in their physical education classes, but these particular students experienced it everyday. Many students understood that the exercise was good for them mentally. "Physical training is beneficial not only to the physical body but to our minds as well," said Blevins. The military science program offered courses such as Introduction to the Army and Marksmanship, Survival and Unarmed Self-Defense, Military Leadership Development, Basic Camp and Advanced Military Science. One of the main goals of the program was to develop and motivate both men and women to become physically, mentally and technically competent, in order to acquire positions in the Army, the Army Reserve and the National Guard. In addition to providing UH students with the leadership skills that were necessary to succeed in their personal and academic lives, the ROTC program also provided them with the motivational tools that helped them strive for success in their military careers. "After the initial shock of being told what to do, it gets to a point where you are actually building character and self esteem. You actually get to where you go beyond what's expected of you; you get to where you set goals for yourself to be better than what's expected," said biological psychology major cadet Steven McAfee. -Erin Nagy .cacleniics
