Students who choose to become cadets in the University of Richmond’s ROTC program make a commitment to serve their country in the U.S. Army for a period of time following graduation. In return, they receive an education second to none. For most students who participate in the Military Science and Leadership program, making a commitment to military service after Richmond isn’t a chore or obligation but a privilege.
Senior cadets can also request to delay their entry into active service, following graduation, by competing for the Educational Delay Program. Seniors can pursue graduate studies in physical therapy, medical school, dental school, veterinary school, or law.
Cadets participate in the ROTC program because they are interested in careers in the military, not simply in fulfilling a four-year commitment. But those who do decide to reenter the civilian workforce after serving their country find that employers are eager to hire Richmond ROTC graduates. As job applicants, these men and women boast a record of academic performance at a highly selective liberal arts university along with the training, discipline and work experience that only the U.S. Army can provide.
