The Reserve Officers' Training Corps is the best opportunity for you to get invaluable experience while you earn a college degree. When enrolled in ROTC, you learn and develop leadership skills and prepare for a career as an officer in the U.S. Military.

ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will serve as a leader in the Military.

Student Talk

  • Brian Marquez

    "Choosing ROTC was the right decision for me because I have always been intrigued in serving our country. As far as ROTC here at Lewis, we are one of the top tier programs in the nation, and our awards and our lieutenants are proof of it. It also has a flight program, which not many schools in the state of Illinois have."

  • Ken Nakanishi

    "I choose Air Force ROTC because this way I can serve my country, and at the same time I can fly airplanes, which is something I've always wanted to do."
