Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)

Welcome to the Thorobred ROTC Program!

KSU Army ROTC is a partnership program within the University of Kentucky Wildcat Battalion which has been a commissioning source for the United States Army for over a hundred years. Centrally located in Hathaway Hall, Army ROTC has one primary task: to educate and train college students to become military officers. This is done through a combination of classroom instruction, physical fitness training, training exercises, and special events. Throughout each semester, Cadets will participate in events ranging from early morning runs and marches to supporting the KSU Athletic Department during KSU Football and Basketball games. There is always a need for motivated individuals to come out and support KSU campus activities. The benefits of participating in a collegiate ROTC program are plentiful. Every year the graduating seniors receive not only a college diploma, but a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. Until that day, however, there is no shortage of training events to introduce Cadets to the community they will one day enter. Information on the Wildcat Battalion and training events can be found at UK Wildcat Battalion.
