From its creation in 1980 until today, the Georgia Southern Army ROTC Program has pursued only one mission: to commission future leaders in the U.S. Army. Our award-winning program is the largest of its kind in the Southeastern United States, and recruits only the highest quality students, the best of which graduate with a degree and a gold bar.
Highlights of our program include:
Four-time recipient of the prestigious MacArthur Award, presented to the top ROTC program from each of the eight brigades. (2009, 2010, 2015, and 2016)
Winning the 2013 6th Brigade Ranger Challenge and placing 2nd in 2014 and 2017.
Winning the 2016-17 State Ranger Challenge competition.
The largest Army ROTC Nursing program in the nation.
Serving as the Green to Gold counterpart battalion for both Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield.
Meeting or exceeding the required number of Army Commissioned Officers for over the last decade, one of only a handful in the country to do so.
Scholarships awarded to 56% of our students; 33% in the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP); and only 11% Non-Scholarship/Non-SMP students.
In the Eagle Battalion, you will be trained and mentored to the highest possible standards. Our expectations are high, but our world-class group of Cadre will be there every step of the way to teach, coach and mentor you to your success.
