High School Students
Vanderbilt ROTC cadets participate in a rigorous academic program that includes military science, leadership and ethics courses. Over summer months, cadets have the opportunity to study abroad, participate in internships, or receive hands-on training at Army bases all over the world.
They are regularly counseled on their personal and career development. Cadets enjoy an unmatched level of trust and camaraderie with their fellow ROTC students- all while ROTC's commanding officers work to ensure that the experience is fully integrated with Vanderbilt's overall academic and social missions.
A Day in the Life
A Vanderbilt student leads a busy life, juggling classes, homework, clubs and sports. An ROTC student is no different. Every day is different, but here is what a typical Thursday could look like for a cadet:
1900-2000 Dinner with the club soccer team
2000-2030 Group meeting at the library for a class project
2030-2300 After a little studying for Chemistry, get some sleep! No PT tomorrow, but a meeting before class with a meeting for the pre-med society
