Reserve Officer Training Corps

Insert your title here

Begun in 1916, the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program is one of the most demanding and rewarding leadership programs in the country. ROTC programs at Virginia Tech offer the opportunity to gain leadership skills, receive military training, and prepare for a fulfilling career that reflects the Hokie motto, Ut Prosim (That I May Serve).

Founded in 1872 as a land grant and full military college, the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets boasts a long, proud tradition still upheld by the civilian track and ROTC programs. For more information on specific branches, see the links below.
