Bridgewater’s Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is a dedicated group of bright college students who commit their daily lives to making a difference on and off campus. Bridgewater State University ROTC is a satellite school of Boston University ROTC. In addition to Army ROTC, Bridgewater State University does offer Air Force ROTC and Marine ROTC programs. Army ROTC is an elective course and is taken along with other degree requirements. As it is an elective, students are free to join their freshman and sophomore year without any commitment to the Army.
If students choose to continue in the ROTC program, upon graduation they will have the opportunity to be commissioned into the Active Duty Army, Army Reserves, or the Army National Guard, where they will then have the option to explore a wide range of interests and branches. ROTC equips members with the appropriate tools, training and experiences that will help individuals succeed in any competitive environment.
Bridgewater’s Cadet Jeffrey R. Lepage vouches for the ROTC program as he believes, “Being a member of the Army ROTC program throughout my college experience at Bridgewater has taught me not only the importance of effective leadership in organizations, but also how to develop myself as a young leader and professional.” Cadet Jeffrey R. Lepage encourages anyone “who has a desire and passion for serving others while developing themselves to be the best possible version that they can be so they can lead the sons and daughters of America to victory” to join Bridgewater’s ROTC.
