Summer Training Opportunities

ROTC cadets have a unique opportunity during the summer after their sophomore year.  They are allowed to attend various army schools including Airborne, Air Assault and Cadet Culture and Language Program (CULP).  Selection for these schools can be highly competitive, but cadets who return the following year always feel it was well worth the effort.
