Life after college

Being an Officer in the U.S. Army means you're a leader, a counselor, a strategist and a motivator. It's similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an Officer, you will lead other Soldiers in all situations and adjust in environments that are always changing. Officers are problem-solvers, key influencers and planners. They are driven to achieve success with their team on every mission.

After graduation, you'll be an officer in the Army with leadership and management skills. You can serve part-time in the Army National Guard or Army Reserves, or serve full-time in the Active Army. Employers know that Army ROTC teaches the skills they're looking for in people they hire and promote.

Once you receive your degree, you will attend an Officer Basic Course (OBC). Each Officer Branch or job has its own OBC. Upon completion of your OBC you will then go to your assigned unit, either on Active Duty or the Reserve Components (National Guard or Reserves).
