Transcript LOW PROFILE A cadet kept his head low during grenade training. The cadets went through rigorous exercises to prepare them for their future in the US Army. Photo by Pin Lim Calendar of Events Grenade Training Rock Wall Climb Induction Scholarship presentation Awards ceremony IN THE A ■rl^^ecr^r^tWr careers - military and civilian Discipline, hard work, good study habits, leadership skills...all qualities which a college student should work to develop in order to be successful. One way some students chose to do so was to join the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC). This gave them the chance to get a head start on their careers while getting an education. While many students may have been hesitant about joining the ROTC, they often realized the opportunity that doing so could afford them. For this reason, the first two years of ROTC held no obligation for the cadets. During this time, the classes focused on an introduction to the military: map reading, uniforms, the structure of the army, and other basics. "If, after joining, you look around and say, 'This isn't for me', you can turn in your equipment and walk away,' said ROTC director Major Reyna. However, a large number of students chose to remain in the program, taking more intense classes and attending training sessions during the summer. "We're here to and teach officers in the ^i SHOW AND TELL The cadets went over a blueprint during a demonstration. The cadets learned about vehicles, procedures, uniforms, and many other aspects of the military. Photo by Pin Lim I'M IN THE MONEY A proud cadet accepted a scholarship from the ROTC. Scholarships were one of the reasons some students chose to stick with the program. Photo by Christy Varghese 3 81 Organizations In addition to being paid, many of these students received scholarships. Many of the students at UH were adults who were returning to further their education, and the population of the ROTC cadets reflected that. About 75% of the cadets were veterans, or students who had some sort of experience with military service. These students were helpful to the younger cadets, as they had a better idea of what the military was about, and were able to provide a strong example. The ROTC was popular with international students as well. Non-citizens were allowed to join, but had to begin the process of gaining citizenship by their junior year in order to advance in the program. The experience gained in the ROTC program remained with the students, whether or not they chose to become career soldiers. Even as civilians , the lessons they learned helped prepare them for the challenges of whatever career they chose.
