What we do
Part of becoming an Army Officer is challenging yourself beyond what you can do. We include adventurous activities into our program allowing Cadets to push themselves to the edge and beyond and to do things most Americans do not get to do. We rappel down a 40-foot tower, run through challenging confidence courses, conquer a Field Leadership Reaction Course, and learn how to survive in the water.
Why we do it
Every summer, the top Cadets are chosen to attend one of several U.S. Army Schools: US Army Airborne Training (Georgia), US Army Air Assault Training (Ft Drum, New York), Internship Programs and various CTLT position with active units that are performing real-world missions. Competition is intense, but the selected Cadets are in for an experience of a lifetime and only the best get picked.
What is RQW
Ranger Qualification Week is the grand finale of training which allows Cadets to challenge themselves mentally and physically through a rigorous Cadet driven scenario. Completing this scenario will bring great credit upon yourself, allow you to become an instructor in Ranger Company for the following year, and ensure you are one of the top Cadets in the Battalion.
Throughout the season you will have the opportunity to learn of your weaknesses and improve on them, while highlighting and improving your strengths.
You will be exposed to the physical and mental toughness required to make sound judgments in strenuous situations.
Furthermore TEAM work is emphasized to the extreme.
