Experience The Camaraderie of ROTC
Do more with less! Is that possible? The Bison Battalion of Howard University a subchapter of the GW Chapter proved it can be done. With less than 32 Cadets enrolled, they volunteered, contributed and participated in more events in the community than any ROTC unit in the nation. For the past two years, California State University, Fresno, the Bulldog Battalion has won the most active company in the nation. The Bisons of Howard University in Washington DC snatch the award right from under them. The Bulldog Battalion never saw it coming as it was announced at the ROTC Luncheon during the 2008 Annual AUSA meeting. Since its inception in the summer of 2007, they’ve participated in more events supporting the community that AUSA recognized them as the most active ROTC Company in the nation. Presenting the award was the Commander of the US Army Cadet Command, MG Montague Winfield and accepting the award was the VP of the ROTC Company 220193, C/CSM Jasmyn Morgan. So how does a program with less than 32 Cadets become competitive? The answer is their motto. “Leadership and Pride!” The leadership committed for the good of the organization thus instilling pride in its members.
When you become a part of Army ROTC, you're not just working toward a diploma, but an even brighter future as a leader alongside other motivated Cadets. But make no mistake, you're a student first. You'll have a college schedule like your fellow students, but you'll also receive classroom and field courses that will challenge and excite you. Beyond that, you can take part in events and activities with fellow Cadets that will make your college experience even better.
