Fox Valley Army ROTC

The Fox Valley Army ROTC Battalion at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh has the most exciting and fastest growing Military Science program on campus. Army ROTC at UW Oshkosh allows outstanding college students to become part-time or full-time commissioned officers in the US Army.

In May 2015, Cadet Command announced the Fox Valley Army ROTC Battalion as a recipient of the prestigious MacArthur Award for the 2013-2014 school year.  This annual award recognizes eight schools, selected from among the 275 senior Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) programs nationwide, as the top programs in the country.  The award recognizes the ideals of "duty, honor, and country" as advocated by MacArthur and is based on a combination of the achievement of the school's commissioning mission, its cadets' performance and standing on the Command's National Order of Merit List, and its cadet retention rate.

UW Oshkosh has also been ranked military friendly by Military Times, GI Jobs Magazine and Military Advanced Education Journal. In addition to the UW Oshkosh campus, ROTC programs are offered through the Fox Valley Battalion on the St. Norbert, Ripon College, University of Wisconsin Green Bay and Marian University campuses.
