Army ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. It prepares you with the tools, training and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition, too. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be an officer in the United States Army.
Fall FTX, conducted at Wendell Ford, Kentucky, evaluates land navigation skill proficiency, introduces cadets to the Situational Training Exercise (STX) method of leader evaluation and training, and provides an opportunity for cadets to experience an obstacle course and the rappel tower.
Spring FTX, conducted at Wendell Ford, Kentucky, is the final proving ground for cadets bound for Leadership Development and Assessment Course (LDAC) at Fort Lewis, Washington. Squad STX lanes are conducted and evaluated identical to what the cadet will experience at LDAC. Basic Course Cadets complete a confidence course, an obstacle course, and a paintball battle day. Once again, land navigation skills are tested both day and night. Variable lanes are also included, offering a cange from the standard STX lanes. The Spring FTX is a joint training exercise between all Army ROTC programs operating in the State of Indiana.
