The University of Toledo ROTC will host an open house Friday, Aug. 17, for those interested in finding out more about the officer-training program.
The event will begin at 4 p.m. with a cookout, games and other activities in front of the Health Education Center across from the Glass Bowl on Main Campus.
Attendees can participate in activities such as paintball, corn hole and the rock-climbing wall, as well as interact with cadets in the ROTC Battalion to learn more about the program and the UT Department of Military Science and Leadership.
Army ROTC courses provide military skills, including land navigation, first aid, rifle marksmanship and rappelling, as well as military history, organization and structure.
The UT Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) was founded in 1947; more than 1,500 lieutenants have been commissioned through the program since it began.
