High School Students to Experience Cadet Life at UToledo

January 23, 2020 | Events, UToday, University College



Several area high school juniors and seniors will report to The University of Toledo Thursday, Jan. 23, for the ROTC Program’s Cadet for a Day.

Cadet For A Day is an event open to college and high school students who want to experience Reserve Officers’ Training Corps life at UToledo.

The event is designed to answer questions for prospective students who are considering entering the military upon completion of their degree.

“Our goal is to provide college and high school students with an overview of the Army ROTC Program at The University of Toledo,” Phil Stevenson, scholarship and enrollment officer in the Department of Military Science, said. “These aspiring college and high school students will have the chance to meet with UToledo cadets and Military Science Department faculty and staff, and tour our beautiful campus.”

Following a reception and lunch, the students will hear about the UToledo Army ROTC Program and learn about Army ROTC scholarships.

After touring ROTC facilities and UToledo’s Main Campus, the students will have the opportunity to attend a leadership lab at the Student Recreation Center, where the battalion will participate in the high ropes course and rock climbing wall.

“We hope this day will give college and high school students a look at what the UToledo Army ROTC Program is all about and how it can support undergraduate and graduate education goals of University students who are considering a future as an Army officer,” Stevenson said.
