ROTC Alumni WallAfter the 2018 Officer Commisioning Ceremony, the Military Science department unveiled a ROTC Alumni Wall, which wall recognizes the seven UR alumni who have achieved the rank of General Officer in the United States Army. Reaching the rank of General Officer in the Army is very selective; the population is comprised of about one-fifteenth of one percent (0.069%) of the overall total Army end-strength of just over one million soldiers. Having seven that have graduated from UR speaks volumes of the talent selected to attend this prestigious University.
