Army ROTC program to start at Louisiana College

Posted: Updated:
PINEVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Beginning with the Fall 2014 semester, Louisiana College is partnering with Northwestern State University Army ROTC in order to provide Louisiana College students with the opportunity to serve our country as commissioned United States Army officers. 

Lieutenant Colonel William “Macky” Underwood, the Professor of Military Science, states, “ROTC is one of the best leadership courses in the world at preparing young people for long term success. Present at over 1300 campuses across the Nation, it ensures the officers corps of the Army reflects the diversity that makes America great. I am thrilled to be able to offer the students of Louisiana College the opportunity to participate in ROTC.”

Army ROTC is a cooperative program that allows the student to continue their education at LC while they take one Army ROTC class and lab per semester at NSU, the host ROTC institution.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for Louisiana College students.  The Army ROTC program is an exceptional program designed to select, train, and produce the future leadership of the United States Army, Army Reserves, or the Army National Guard,” said Andrew Magee, Coordinator for the Criminal Justice Department at Louisiana College.
