Pittsburg State Army Reserved Officer Training Corps
Military Science/ROTC is a professional development program that allows you to choose and follow any major offered by the university while participating in courses specific to ROTC.
Upon graduation cadets are then commissioned as 2nd Lieutenants in the United States Army, either on active duty or as a part of a reserve component (National Guard/Reserves). Multiple contracting scholarships are offered, ranging from four year scholarships down to two year scholarships, as well as receiving a monthly stipend. Non contracted students are also welcome to participate in ROTC classes with no obligation for the first two years. Gorilla Battalion cadets participate in class and labs learning leadership and management skills, two Field Training Exercises a year, Ranger Challenge (a team-oriented military skills competition), various social functions, Honor Guard presenting the colors at university and community functions, and the time-honored Cannon Crew at football games.
Cadets participate in the Cadet Leader Course training between their junior and senior year at Ft. Knox, KY. It is at this course that all of the skills and leadership developed during your three previous years are put to use and evaluated in order to decide which career field you will be placed into upon graduation and commissioning into the United States Army.
During a special ceremony on Feb. 13, Pittsburg State University President Steve Scott signed a Memorandum of Agreement that established a formal linkage between PSU, Garden City Community College and the Kansas Army National Guard.
The linkage provides for a path for students at GCCC to take the first two years of the Senior Reserve Officers Training Corps (SROTC) curriculum and then transfer to PSU to finish the final two years of the SROTC curriculum and receive a commission into the U.S. Army.
Also signing the official documents were GCCC President Herbert Swender, Lt. Colonel Kenneth Hutchison and Major General Lee Tafanelli.
