True Grit: A Century of Excellence Through ROTC

True Grit: A Century of Excellence Through ROTC

Before Ship’s traditional commencement revelries geared up on May 7, a more intimate ceremony honored the achievements of a select group of graduates in Old Main Chapel. That morning, seventeen ROTC cadets—the largest class to graduate from SU—were commissioned as second lieutenants in the US Army. In the last thirty-five years, Ship has commissioned 550 cadets, joining the more than 500,000 second lieutenants who achieved the rank through the Army Reserves Officers’ Training Corps over the past century.
